Being accused of a violent crime offense in Utah can carry long prison sentences. Due to the fact that many times there is extensive physical injury and public outcry, judges can sentence longer and prosecutors are not as cooperative with any plea or sentencing agreements.
Hiring a violent crimes attorney who can work with private investigators, witnesses, and tell your story to a jury is extremely important. Self-defense can be a critical, important defense in violent crimes criminal charges. Understanding how to tell your side of the story to the jury matters, especially when you are the underdog and the one being charged. Equally important is ensuring that your violent crimes attorney properly investigates your case. The attorney should review witness statements, interview witnesses, run criminal background searches, visit the alleged crime scene and take a deep, long look at the complaining witness’ past. Criminal background searches for all witnesses is a must, along with internet searches and court involvement searches in other states.
