Defending Against Violent Crimes in New York: Why You Need a Strong Legal Advocate


If you live in the state of New York and have committed a violent crime, you could be in a great deal of trouble. Violent crimes cover a whole spectrum of offenses, and the consequences can be severe. If you are convicted, you could be facing jail time, hefty fines, community service, and even restitution. There are also many factors that determine whether a violent crime is a misdemeanor or felony. A violent crime conviction can not only affect you but your family as well. If you need help, contact a solid violent crime defense attorney as soon as possible to help you sort out your case.

Types of Violent Crimes

There are many crimes that fall under the definition of violent:

  • Voluntary Manslaughter
  • Involuntary Manslaughter
  • Rape
  • Child Abuse
  • Criminal Threats
  • Gang Crimes
  • Vehicular Manslaughter
  • Juvenile Charges
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Conspiracy
  • Burglary
  • Battery

The Determinate Sentence in New York

If you commit a crime in the state of New York, the sentence is determinate, which means the fixed years you receive by the judge must be served. Only the parole board can determine whether or not you can be released during that time period. If you are accused of a violent crime in New York, know your rights. This is why you should seek out the help of an attorney. Only they can provide you with the advice you need and put together a good defense.

Although violent crime is dropping in the state, there are still pockets of crime causing problems. There are cases of NYPD aggressively making arrests just to close the case. Many accusations of violent crimes have been made against defendants who vehemently deny their guilt. In this case, it is imperative that you get an attorney with a solid track record to help you. They will look over your case with a fine-toothed comb for errors and possible police misconduct.

If you are accused of a violent crime, it can stay on your record for a lifetime. There may be extenuating circumstances that the court doesn’t know about. You have the option of defending yourself in court, but you must do so with an experienced attorney. As the saying goes “The man who defends himself in court has a fool for a client.” This is true. If you have been accused of a crime, especially one that is violent in nature, you should never attempt to defend yourself. Only an attorney that has defended many clients knows the system and can construct a defense specific to your case. It is your future that is on the line. Don’t risk it on an inexperienced attorney right out of law school.

The Importance of a Skilled Defense Attorney

There are a number of people who have been accused of violent crimes behind bars right now for not retaining the proper representation. You can be innocent but make the wrong statement and end up convicted. Your defense attorney will completely prepare you for what you could expect in court. You will receive guidance on how to conduct yourself in front of a jury. These are keys to getting an acquittal.

Prosecutors will try every angle to make you angry, put words in your mouth, and make you lose your composure. A good defense attorney will tell you what to look out for. If you or someone you know is in need of a good violent crime attorney, call someone who has a great deal of experience and is ready to fight for you. Call them today. Most offer free consultations to get your case up and running.
