Defenses Against Violent Crime Charges
Violent crimes come with some of the most severe and life-changing penalties, and a conviction will appear on your criminal record for the rest of your life. At Mountain Law, we work with you to investigate the facts and circumstances of the alleged crime to develop a persuasive and effective defense.
Some possible strategies to defend against a violent crime charge include:
- Mistaken identity
- Mistake of fact
- Lack of intent to harm
- Lack of ability to cause the harm
- Self-defense or the defense of another
Remember that every defendant is innocent until proven guilty and it is on the prosecutor to prove intent in order to reach a guilty verdict. As a former prosecutor, we understand the tactics that may be employed against you and work hard to build a case that not only anticipates the other side’s argument but also addresses the evidence in your case.
