Get A Former Prosecutor On Your Side After Being Accused Of A Violent Crime
Cases involving crimes of violence are some of the most serious in the entire criminal justice system. Penalties for such offenses range all the way up to life imprisonment without parole and even capital punishment, or the death penalty.
While these cases can be extraordinarily taxing and difficult, at Wegge & Casey, P.C., we believe that every person is presumed innocent under the law and entitled to a competent defense.
Charges That We Defend Against
Our team of attorneys has experience dealing with violent crimes, including the following:
- Homicide and murder
- Assault and battery
This defense in any case – particularly crimes involving violence – must include a thorough review of all the evidence in the case. This is known as discovery, and the prosecution is required to turn over its evidence to the defense counsel under the rules of discovery.
Discovery also includes evaluation of potential pretrial motions such as suppression of evidence and due process violations, as well as careful evaluation of forensic and biological evidence, and in some cases the retention of defense experts. In many instances, it will include negotiations with the prosecuting attorney to secure the best possible outcome given the facts of the particular case.
Our team of attorneys includes the former elected prosecuting attorney of Jefferson County. We have tried many violent crimes ranging from misdemeanor assault to first-degree murder, and our breadth of experience enables us to craft a wholistic defense.
