Skilled & Experienced Criminal Defense

Violent Crimes Lawyer in Olathe

Violent crimes involve the intention to physically injure another person. You can be charged with a violent crime even when the alleged victim was not physically touched or harmed. Depending on the facts of the case, assaulting an individual can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony. In many instances, a violent crime case such as pushing, shoving, kicking and hair pulling that did not result in injury is charged as battery. Violent crime cases typically involve a spouse, ex-spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, fiancé, cohabitant, domestic partner, parent, child, or a stranger who a situation has escalated with.

If you are facing violent crime charges, contact my Olathe violent crime firm immediately for assistance. There can be serious consequences if you are found guilty of assault or battery, including jail time. The severity of the sentencing will depend on whether or not a weapon was used in the situation (aggravated assault), if any injuries occurred and their severity, if the crime also resulted in a violation of a restraining order, and any prior criminal history.
