What are Violent Crimes?

In any violent crime, the prosecution will make the greatest effort to convict you as a safeguard to the public. Whatever they may say regarding your character, it is important to remember that prosecutors have the burden of proving specific elements of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. Even if you are not convicted, the accusation of committing a violent crime has its own set of consequences that can affect your daily life. Our Oakland violent crimes lawyer is ready to protect your future and your reputation.
