Due to the serious nature of violent crimes, the consequences are often substantial and far reaching. The state devotes significant resources to prosecuting these types of cases, and consequently people are consistently falsely convicted or over-prosecuted.


Violent crime charges include both misdemeanors and felonies. The maximum punishment in misdemeanor cases is one year in county jail plus fines and fees. Felonies on the other hand can result in substantial prison time.

A first-degree robbery can result in a prison sentence between three  and nine years, while second degree robbery may lead to a sentence of two to five years.

Kidnapping is punishable by up to eight years in state prison, while felony assault with a deadly weapon can carry up to four year state prison sentence.

Because the consequences of violent crime charges can be devastating from a financial, and practical standpoint, it is important that you get the best representation possible.
