Violent Crime Offenses

Aggressive Newport News Criminal Defense Attorney Serving All of Hampton Roads

According to the Code of Virginia, there are a large amount of violent crimes that an individual can be charged with committing. Any crime that uses violence as a means to an end or as the objective could cost you serious penalties.

At Larry King Law, we have the experience to aggressively pursue a favorable outcome for your case. If you have been arrested and charged with any of the following offenses, you need the zealous Newport News violent crimes lawyer from Larry King Law on your side!

Assault and Battery
Virginia Code §18.2-57 distinguishes assault and battery as two separate crimes. These two offenses are sometimes charged together and the leading consequences can result in jail or prison time, fines and restitution. Assault is the crime of knowingly and willingly threatening a person with imminent bodily harm. Battery is the actual physical assault on the victim.

Murder is the most aggressively prosecuted offense in the state of Virginia and any state in the U.S. In order to be convicted of a murder, prosecutors must prove that you had malice aforethought and that the crime was pre-meditated. Murder, also referred to as homicide, can carry penalties including life in prison without parole and the death penalty.

Manslaughter is a separate charge from murder. The main difference in manslaughter cases are that the vast majority of them occur without malice aforethought. Many of these incidents stem from negligence or the "heat of the moment." While these are technically "lesser" crimes than murder, they still hold immense penalties and steep consequences.

Defense Against Criminal Charges

Violent crimes are extremely serious and without the representation of an aggressive attorney, you could be facing lifelong penalties. At our firm, we will take the time to get to know you, your side of the story and fully explain the potential consequences that you could be facing. We work to achieve a favorable outcome for every case and we will never back down from trial. The moment you or a loved one is arrested for any violent offense, contact Larry King Law right away.
