Michigan Assault Lawyers In Royal Oak
MICHIGAN VIOLENT CRIMES
Cases involving force or any threat of force are referred to as violent crimes. Domestic violence, armed robbery, and sexual assault are a few examples. Arson may also be considered a violent crime, because of the potential for serious injury or death that may result from a fire. Other types of violent crimes may include:
- armed robbery
- assault and battery
- assault with a deadly weapon
- child abuse or child endangerment
- gang violence
- hate crimes
CONSEQUENCES OF VIOLENT CRIMES
Due to the serious nature of these actions, the penalties for those found guilty are also very serious. They may involve long-term imprisonment, life imprisonment or even the death penalty in some states. (Michigan is not a state that endorses capital punishment.)
RIGHTS OF THE ACCUSED
Under our U.S. Constitution, everyone is entitled to the same constitutional rights and judicial process. Even if you cannot afford a Michigan criminal defense lawyer, one will be assigned to you for free, if the state is trying to take away your freedom. However, it may be in your best interest to hire a lawyer that you choose, to ensure that they have the time and experience to advocate for you in the way that will meet your expectations. Acquiring experienced, dedicated counsel can literally be a matter of life or death for some people.
