Violent crime in the United States and Arizona is rampant and there has been an increase of this type of crime in recent years. Because of the increase of violent crimes, our local representatives have significantly increased the penalties for a conviction of these offenses. If you are charged with a violent crime, you need a criminal defense attorney who has a proven track record of trying these cases. Many times, the police rush to attempt to solve these crimes and do not do a complete investigation. The result can be a case that is overly charged by the prosecutor, or worse yet, resulting in an innocent person being convicted of a violent crime. Police may take statements from witnesses who are mistaken or lying, resulting in misidentification and false charges made against you or your loved one. Law enforcement has the goal to clear a case as soon as possible and move on to the next investigation. Many times, they do not gather all of the evidence and witness statements, which would have led to no charges being filed by the prosecution, or less severe charges. Other times, rogue police officers use illegal tactics to gain evidence. Our attorneys know Arizona criminal law and criminal procedure to make sure that illegal evidence is not considered by the court or jury.
