Denver Violent Crime Lawyer
Violent Crimes Carry Tough Sentences in Denver
Any time that you stand accused of a crime, you are at risk of suffering harsh consequences in the event that you are convicted. If you are being charged with a violent crime, however, you need to know that the situation is especially dire. State law provides tough punishments for violent crimes, in excess of what is normally possible in criminal prosecutions. According to the terms of Colorado Revised Statutes §18-1.3-406 (2012), "Sentencing, mandatory for violent crimes," a conviction for a violent crime can result in a prison sentence that is double the maximum length that would otherwise be available.

Fight Back Against Violent Crime Charges
Defending against violent crime allegations can be a considerable challenge, but there are many strategies that may prove to be effective in your case. For example, it is often possible to argue that the suspect was acting in self-defense, and that the alleged victim was actually the aggressor. In other cases, the goal is to clear the defendant's name by demonstrating that there is not enough evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he or she was the perpetrator, or by arguing that the defendant has been mistakenly identified as the perpetrator.
