Common Violent Crimes in San Diego: What You Need to Know

In the state of California, the following are considered violent crimes:

Penalties for Violent Crimes in San Diego

Violent crimes carry serious weight, and those convicted of certain violent crimes could face spending the rest of their lives in prison or the death penalty. Penalties for a violent crime could include monetary fines, community service, anger management classes, or prison sentences. However, if there are aggravating circumstances, the penalties will be much more harsh.

Wrongful Violent Crime Charges: Protect Your Rights

It would be nice to live in a world where only the guilty are arrested and charged with their crimes, but we do not. Every day, innocent individuals are charged with crimes they did not commit, and they have to fight hard to earn their freedom in the judicial system. Racism, poor investigative technique, mistaken identity, and lying accusers and witnesses can make life very difficult for those wrongly accused of a violent crime.

Led by Attorney Gedulin, our team uses the latest technology and knowledge of the legal system in San Diego and in federal courts to fight for our clients’ rights every day. We only accept a limited number of clients so we can focus entirely on the matters at hand. When it comes to criminal defense for violent crimes, we take every part of your case seriously.

Strategic Defenses for Violent Crime Charges in San Diego

Because violent crimes is a category of crimes rather than a particular charge, the defenses against violent crimes vary greatly. Every detail of a case could present the defining characteristic that could exonerate a client, which is why getting started early is important. If you are being investigated for a violent crime, now is the time to reach out for legal counsel. What you say during the course of an investigation could determine whether you face charges for a crime or not.

From the moment our clients call our San Diego violent crime attorneys for help, we start working to make sure the prosecution does not have more than the fair facts of the case and that you are prepared to make informed decisions about your case along the way.

Some possible defenses to violent crimes could include proving mistaken identity, casting reasonable doubt on the evidence presented, or proving self-defense. Our team will make jail and prison visits if necessary, so it is never too late to reach out for guidance. Attorney Gedulin and his team have the violent crime defense experience needed to secure the best possible outcome in your case.
