Violent Crime Lawyer in Rhode Island
Whether you have been arrested for simple assault, battery, domestic violence, kidnapping, manslaughter, homicide, or terrorist threats, the consequences of a criminal conviction and sentencing may change your life in incredibly drastic ways. Your civil rights may be stripped away, you may be sentenced to a long prison term, and you may never be able to restore your status as a productive citizen.
Even if you are completely innocent, the arrest and charges filed against you indicate that the prosecution has enough evidence to pursue a conviction. While this may seem unjust, the unfortunate reality of the situation is that everyday many innocent people are convicted of crimes they did not commit. Without the guidance and advocacy of a Rhode Island criminal lawyer, you are putting yourself at risk for an overloaded and often times over-zealous justice system to obtain a conviction against you, regardless of your innocence or guilt. A lawyer with experience defending clients arrested for violent crimes in Rhode Island will be your best defense against this risk.
