When you are arrested for a violent criminal offense in Pomona or the surrounding areas of Southern California, you can expect law enforcement agencies to aggressively investigate the charges and prosecutors to be zealous in their prosecution. Because violent crimes involve threats of bodily injury, physical harm, and/or death, law enforcement officers, and prosecutors are especially vigilant about seeking a conviction. Further, judges often have less flexibility in sentencing, so violent crimes often carry harsh penalties including lengthy terms in state prison. Whether you are the target of an investigation or you have been formally arrested for a violent offense, you should immediately and repeatedly assert your constitutional right not to speak to the policy without an experienced Inland Empire / Los Angles criminal defense attorney.
Explaining your Rights and Defending Your Interests
The prospect of a conviction for a violent crime like murder, manslaughter, armed robbery, domestic violence, assault and battery, and similar offenses can turn your life upside down. As a Pomona violent crimes defense lawyer who limits his practice to criminal law, my practice, and firm resources are devoted to defending those facing serious misdemeanor and felony charges.
At the Law Office of Danny Saleh, I recognize that the prospect of a felony conviction record, state prison confinement, and the other penalties associated with a violent crime can be daunting. As such, I take the time to demystify the criminal justice process by discussing the system, charges, range of punishment, and potential defenses. This approach to clear communication empowers my clients to make informed decisions and participate actively in their own defense. We utilize forensic specialists, private investigators, experts, and our extensive litigation resources to develop a persuasive defense designed to obtain an acquittal, dismissal of charges, or a favorable reduction in the charges or penalties.
Defense Strategies to California Violent Crime Charges
Our law firm practice is limited to criminal defense, so we recognize that “one size fits all” defense strategies do not provide the most effective way to protect our clients’ freedom and reputation. We engage in a careful analysis of evidence and investigation to uncover new evidence and testimony that can be used to build a persuasive defense for our client. Although the specific defenses we will employ depend on the facts and circumstances of the case, some defenses we might consider include the following:
- Exposing witnesses who are lying or confused
- Revealing inaccurate eyewitness identification
- Failure of prosecutor to prove every element of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt
- Contaminated physical evidence and other sloppy law enforcement investigation techniques
- Improper racial profiling
- Politically motivated prosecutors
- Legitimate claims of self-defense, defense of others, or defense of property
- Rush to judgment by police officers
- Fabricated, mishandled, or false evidence
- Evidence obtain in illegal search and seizures
- Improper racial profiling
- Lack of requisite intent by the accused
