Arrested For a Violent Crime?

Pennsylvania courts take violent crimes seriously. If you are charged with a violent crime in Dauphin, Cumberland or York Counties, you need to have a legal professional present to present your case and defend your rights in court. Retaining a lawyer is essential because many violent crimes carry lengthy prison sentences upon conviction. I maintain that you are innocent. Maybe you were charged with a crime due to mistaken identity, false testimony, lazy police work, racism, fabricated or planted evidence, or an overzealous prosecutor. I can work toward having your charges reduced or your case dismissed.
Types of Violent Crimes
You can be charged with various types of violent crimes in Pennsylvania, including:
Homicide is intentional, premeditated conduct that results in the death of another person. In Pennsylvania, homicide is a type of first-degree murder.
Manslaughter is reckless or careless behavior that results in the death of another person. For example, if a drunk driver hits another car, killing the driver, this could be considered manslaughter.
Simple assault is a misdemeanor offense. These cases involve a person causing injury to another and attempting to physically harm that person. Usually, simple assault is associated with domestic violence.
Aggravated assault involves situations in which the individual used a deadly weapon, such as a firearm, knife, or baseball bat to inflict pain. Also, assaulting a police officer, fireman, or another person of authority is considered automatic aggravated assault, regardless of whether or not a weapon was used. Aggravated assault can be charged as a first-degree felony.
