West Chester, PA Violent Crimes Attorney
Violent Crimes in West Chester Pennsylvania carry some of the most severe penalties the law can impose. Law enforcement is not sympathetic to people who commit violent crimes. Therefore, if you are the target of an investigation involving a violent crime or you have been arrested, you owe it to yourself and your family to seek out an experienced and skilled criminal defense attorney who can protect your rights and navigate the murky waters of the criminal justice system.
EVEN A SO-CALLED MINOR CHARGE CAN SERIOUSLY IMPACT YOUR FUTURE
Some violent crime charges may not seem like that big of a deal. Maybe you have been charged with Assault and battery charges resulting from a bar fight or an altercation at school. A person could be charged with domestic assault after a fight with a spouse or family member. You may think that these charges will go away or have little impact on your future. Ignoring these issues will not make them go away, a conviction could result in jail time, losing contact with your children and a criminal record that employers and the public will be able to access.
In more serious cases, the violent crime charge will have a serious impact on your liberties and your future. Homicide, attempted homicide, accessory to murder, aggravated assault, aggravated robbery and certain weapons charges carry lengthy prison sentences.
Some of the most common violent crimes that you could face include:
- Attempted Homocide
- Aggravated Assault
- Gun and Weapon Possession
- Criminal Contempt
- Tampering with a Witness
- Intimidating a Witness
- Unlawful Imprisonment
