This is the first post in what will be a series on the process of defending those in Little Rock, and throughout Arkansas, who have been charged with a violent crime. We feel this is an important topic to address due to the aggressive nature which prosecutors often take in such matters. We cannot stress enough that, if you are charged with a violent offense, that you need to contact a criminal defense lawyer immediately.
We will be addressing several topics over our coming posts. Issues we intend to analyze include:
- The issue of self-defense in violent crime cases
- The types of search & seizure issues which arise in such cases
- The concept of preventing a witness from identifying the defendant in Court
- Issues in cases which hinge on eyewitness identifications
We have decided to address these types of issues as they do not arise in most non-violent cases. Examples of cases in which these types of issues are typical involve robbery, assault, battery, and homicide. When selecting an attorney to defend you in such a matter it is important that you retain counsel familiar with the above-mentioned issues.
We have previously looked at issues specific to violent offenses, specifically in the area of domestic violence cases. Our prior discussions looked at topics such as how Arkansas residents can defend themselves against false domestic violence claims and why defendants sometimes face false domestic violence allegations. In this series we will address additional issues which we did not cover in those prior discussions and, also, which apply to a broader number of cases.
We cannot stress enough that you need legal representation if you are facing such allegations. Our Little Rock attorneys also handle matters in Fort Smith, Fayetteville, Springdale, Jonesboro, North Little Rock, Conway, Rogers, Pine Bluff, and throughout the rest of Arkansas. Contact us today.
