You can be charged with a violent crime even if you never engaged in any of the above acts. If you were present and provided assistance to those who were directly involved, you can be charged with the same crime, whether it is robbery or murder.
Our experience as former prosecutors gives us valuable insight into how the government puts together a case. This often gives us the tools we need to take it apart.
Mandatory minimum penalties are typically involved in cases involving violent crimes. These crimes leave judges with no discretion to deviate from the required sentences due to individual circumstances.
We carefully analyze the facts of the case, the evidence against you and the potential consequences. We may be able to negotiate to get the charges reduced or the case dropped completely.
