Violent Crime Defense Lawyer in Phoenix

Attorney Randall J. Craig is a former felony prosecutor for Maricopa County and has fought successfully in the courtroom in high profile felony cases. This background gives the clients of the firm the advantage of having a criminal defense lawyer that understands how the prosecution is going to handle the case. Staying one step ahead in the fight for your defense can be the advantage you require in order to achieve a dismissal of the charges, a reduced charge or other negotiation on your behalf.

When a violent crime case is investigated and the accused arrested, there may be errors in police procedure in the arrest or in the gathering of evidence, or in the way the evidence was handled by the investigators or the laboratories involved. Every bit of evidence against you will be thoroughly reviewed and any errors or failures to follow the correct procedures will be challenged in court. Some successful court challenges result in the suppression of evidence, which then can lead to a case dismissal. This is only one approach to a serious violent crime charge when aggressively fighting for the defense of the client.

Violent Crime Penalties

Arizona has some of the toughest laws and penalties with regard to all types of violent crimes. These penalties have the purpose of acting as a deterrent for those who may be considering a criminal act. Phoenix law enforcement has been given the task to reduce the number of violent crimes in the area, and to get criminals off the streets.

Arizona is a death penalty state, and if convicted of murder, you may face the death penalty. Other violent crimes include long stays in state or federal prison as part of the penalty. It is a serious situation to be charged with a felony in Arizona, and it is critical that you have a powerful criminal defense lawyer fighting aggressively for your defense.

If you have been charged and convicted with rape in Phoenix, you could be forced to register as a "sex offender" for the rest of your life. Charges of rape and statutory rape are common today, and it is easy for individuals to be falsely accused of these charges. An attorney from our firm can assist you in fighting these charges as well as charges for harassment. There are many different circumstances that could result in a harassment charge, and some types of harassment charges are felonies.

When an action was taken against another person with the intent to harm with a weapon, the law enforcement considers it an aggravated assault. Assault & battery charges can result in heavy penalties such as time spent in prison or jail. It is always important to understand the legal definitions of crimes so that you can fight your charges in the most precise way.
