Violent Crimes in Massachusetts Are Aggressively Prosecuted: You Need An Aggressive Lawyer to Defend You
Violent crimes almost always carry harsher penalties than any other criminal offense. A criminal conviction for a violent offense often includes lengthy prison sentences sometimes without the possibility of parole. The reason why these charges carry stiff penalties and are rigorously prosecuted is because these offenses always have a victim. Law enforcement officers, prosecutors and judges have zero tolerance for violent offenders and take these offenses very seriously. Anyone arrested for committing a violent act against another will face fierce criminal prosecution in an attempt to obtain justice for the victim and their family.
Violent Crime or Self-Defense?
A violent crime is defined as any criminal offense in which violence is used in order to commit the crime. If you or a loved one has been arrested for any types of violent crime, your freedom and legal rights are at risk. The best way to defend against an aggressive state or federal prosecutor is to hire an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney to represent you.
There are many cases in which charges are filed against an individual that was acting in self-defense or in the defense of another. There also are many cases of mistaken identity where a witness may pick the wrong person out of a line-up. Physical evidence may also point to an innocent person when the evidence is mishandled or taken out of context. There are also instances where a person is mistakenly charged for a violent crime or the victim of a rush to judgment by a prosecutor who is motivated by the media or political expediency.

Any violent crime is considered to be a grave offense due to the fact that the life and safety of a victim is considered to be at risk.
