Violent crimes under Alabama law may include crimes such as assault, battery, kidnapping, domestic abuse or violence, stalking, sexual abuse, murder and manslaughter, and robbery and burglary. Courts consider various factors when deciding whether a crime falls under the violent crime category. Our Birmingham criminal defense lawyer can analyze the specific circumstances of your case and help you make informed decisions throughout the legal process.
Depending on the degree of severity of the violent crime, punishments may vary. Courts will often order fines, jail time, or even a life prison sentence for certain felony convictions. Furthermore, if you have previous felony arrests or convictions on your criminal record, the court may increase the degree of your charges. Our Birmingham criminal defense lawyer can help you understand the legal factors regarding your case and represent you from start to finish.
Because violent crimes are often charged as felonies, seeking experienced legal representation can make a difference. Alabama courts recognize three classes of felony charges, including Class A, Class B, and Class C. Class A violent crime felonies typically carry harsher penalties while Class B and Class C violent crime felonies often carry less severe penalties, and we can seek a positive solution and try to lessen or drop the charges, depending on the circumstances of your case.
