St. Louis Defense Attorney for Assault Charges
Being charged with a violent crime is very serious because there is an alleged victim involved – whenever there is an alleged victim involved, the stakes always get higher. Much like homicide cases, assaults, domestic assaults, and other violent crimes such as robbery also have severe consequences if you are convicted. These crimes often carry mandatory minimum sentences if convicted and may not be eligible for probation depending on the specific circumstances.
What You Should Do
Not talking to the police and asking for an attorney right away are the two most important things you can do when you are charged with a violent crime like assault. We cannot stress this enough: do not speak to the police or consent to any searches of your property if you are a suspect. Instead, insist on speaking with an attorney immediately.
