Defending against a Virginia violent crime can be successful

When a person is charged with a crime in Virginia, they may think that their lives will never be the same again. However, this is not necessarily true. Many people who were once accused of crimes, such as assault and domestic violence, go on to live completely normal lives after the charges against them were dropped. Some Virginia residents end up with reduced charges and therefore, less severe penalties.

The severity of these penalties will depend on the severity of the crime allegedly committed. Crimes involving violent incidents may result in more serious penalties. A number of violent crimes fall under one of three categories: assault, battery and malicious wounding. While assault involves threatening a person, battery involves an actual physical act against another person. Malicious wounding is the most serious of the three charges, as it involves hurting someone with the intent to seriously injure or kill them.

Domestic violence charges are also fairly common and typically involve an assault or battery against a family member or domestic partner. If you are found guilty, a domestic violence conviction can result in various consequences that affect how often you see your children and other aspects of your life.

While facing criminal charges can be scary, you do not have to handle this stressful time on your own. An experienced criminal defense attorney who is familiar with the state laws relating to your case may be able assist you. Defending against criminal charges is difficult but can prove to be successful in many situations. The Collins Law Firm, P.C., is focused on making sure that their clients are well protected.
