Types of Violent Crimes
The burden of proof lies with the state of Georgia when prosecutors pursue a conviction. This means the prosecutor must prove the accused committed the crime beyond a reasonable doubt. As the defendant, you don’t have to prove anything. You do need a skilled attorney to identify weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case and explain them to a jury.
We represent clients charged with violent crimes that include:
- Assault and battery
- Aggravated assault
- Aggravated robbery
- Rape and sexual assault
- Family violence battery
- Armed robbery
What are the Penalties for Violent Crimes?
A conviction for a violent crime can affect you for many years or the rest of your life, depending on the specific charges. You could be facing substantial prison time, large fines and more. After your prison sentence and probation are completed, you may find it difficult to secure housing, find a job, and pursue your career and higher education goals. We fight hard to protect you from conviction and defend your rights throughout the process.
