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 –

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

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

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.
