Frequently Asked Questions

  • What Is A Violent Crime?


    A violent crime is committed when an individual injures or kills someone while carrying out a criminal act. If a deadly weapon was involved in the crime, your penalties will be more severe.

  • How Are Manslaughter & Murder Different?


    Murder occurs when an individual intentionally or knowingly kills someone. Manslaughter occurs when an individual kills someone as a result of reckless actions or inactions.

  • How Will The Prosecution Determine The Charges?


    Your prosecutor will pursue charges with enough evidence to back them up. This means the prosecution will seek out a legally sound case. If the case contains an inherent flaw, the prosecutor will likely not pursue the case. If there is enough evidence to pursue a case, the prosecution will pursue a conviction. If the case lacks evidence, charges will most likely be dropped or another charge will be taken into consideration.

  • Are Police Officers Required To Read Me My Rights?


    Law enforcement officers are not legally required to read your rights at the time of your arrest. The Miranda Warning is only required if the police officer plans to utilize your statement against you as incriminating evidence in a court of law.
