Serious Defense For Serious Violent Charges
The consequences of violent crimes like murder, malicious wounding, assault, robbery and abduction are very severe. For example, conviction on a charge of committing malicious wounding could result in a minimum of five years in prison up to 20 years and a $100,000 fine – a murder conviction could in some instances possibly result in life in prison or the death penalty. A conviction for aggravated malicious wounding carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.
With your freedom and even possibly your life on the line, you and your attorney must face violent crime charges head-on, putting together the strongest defense possible. You need advocates with decades of criminal experience who know Virginia’s criminal justice system inside and out.
