Common Defenses for Violent Crime Charges

If you have been arrested on suspicion of having committed a violent crime, it is important to recognize that not every arrest leads to a conviction. There are often legal defenses available that could result in your case being dismissed or an acquittal.

Some of the more commonly raised legal defenses in violent crime cases include:

  • Self-defense: Claiming self-defense means that you are arguing that your actions were justified as a response to aggression on the part of the alleged victim. Self-defense is an affirmative defense, which means that the burden shifts to the defendant to prove that he or she was acting in self-defense at the time of the alleged incident.
  • Constitutional violations: If law enforcement violates your rights while they are investigating a case, it could result in evidence against you being thrown out of court. For example, if you confess to a crime under police pressure and without having been properly informed of your right to counsel, it may result in the confession being deemed inadmissible.
  • Improper police conduct: Law enforcement officers have certain protocol and legal procedures that must be followed. Too often, aggressive police tactics lead to false arrest, improper imprisonment, false evidence, or false incrimination. Improper arrests and improper procedures can be a cause to exclude evidence or even to dismiss the case.

If you have been accused of a violent crime, it is critical that you retain qualified legal counsel as soon as possible.
