Violent Charges Deserve A Skilled Defender
A person charged with a violent crime faces some of the most difficult legal challenges that exist. Those facing such charges must find legal representation with the will and experience to stand with them in these difficult times. You cannot afford to have an attorney who is not up to the challenge.
Attorney Paul Andrews has represented clients from Rapid City and across South Dakota in all manner of criminal charges. Violent crimes carry dire penalties and extremely high stakes. His extensive legal knowledge and strong reputation in court can make a real difference in your case.
The High Stakes Of Violent Charges
What makes violent crimes such high stakes situations is the extensive penalties you may face. There are severe and definitive penalties for such crimes as:
- Aggravated assault
- Domestic violence
These penalties often include multiple years in prison. Even those not convicted of the charges they face can have their lives upended by the accusation.
Anyone accused of a violent crime has a highly fraught, uphill battle ahead of them. However, you do not have to face this fight alone.
Your Rights In A Criminal Trial
Criminal law is the pursuit of justice. To achieve a just and correct outcome, police and prosecutors must follow certain rules and requirements. Evidence must be accurate. Testimony must be honest. And your rights must be respected. Justice is an impartial pursuit of truth in this way.
However, the ideal of justice is rarely the reality. Police abuse their power. Prosecutors overstep. Evidence is misused. Witnesses lie. And if no one stands up for your rights, then you might start to think you do not have any. You deserve a defense attorney who will advocate for you with strength and conviction.
