Abilene & San Angelo Violent Crimes Lawyer
We Are Here to Protect Your Rights
It’s no secret that violent crimes are taken very seriously in the Texas legal system and carry stiff penalties. In addition to jail or prison time and fines, you will also have a permanent mark on your criminal record which will show up in background checks. This can seriously limit your opportunities for employment and housing.
We say this not to frighten you, but to impress upon you the importance of hiring a skilled attorney. No matter how bleak the situation may seem, there are always things you can do to build your defense. The Law Offices of David M. White is here to help you.
It’s Never Too Early to Start Preparing
Creating a timeline of events for these cases is of the utmost importance. A clear narrative must be presented to the court so that the facts do not get muddled with hearsay and exaggeration. If you have been arrested, do not discuss the details of the crime with law enforcement. You have a right to remain silent, and if you try to explain yourself, they will only be listening for details that incriminate you.
Remember, it is their job to make an arrest, not prove your innocence. You should also avoid discussing the case in too much detail with friends or family. Preferably, you will not tell anyone about the incident until you’ve spoken with an attorney.
Violent crime charges may involve:
If you aren’t clear of the details of the events yourself and are telling different people different versions of the story, this can come back to hurt you in court. Talk your case through with an attorney before doing anything else.
