If you are accused of a violent felony, prosecutors will come after you with all of their power and resources.
The Innocence Legal Team trial attorneys, whom we refer to as Team Leaders, have long experience with handling every type of violent felony.
Aggravated assault involves the intentional infliction of serious bodily injury on another person or an assault with a deadly weapon such as a firearm. Most aggravated assaults are “wobblers,” meaning they can be charged as either a misdemeanor, with a penalty of up to a year in jail, or a felony which can be punished with a sentence of up to four years in prison.
A charge of domestic violence may be brought for harming or threatening to harm a cohabitant or “intimate partner” such as a spouse, domestic partner, child, or parent or other family member. Penalties range from one (1) year in county jail to up to four (4) years in California state prison. If a child is involved, parental rights may be at stake. Defenses include accident, self-defense, and false accusation.
Kidnapping is defined as taking a person to another location by means of force or fear. Kidnapping is punishable by eight years in prison or up to life if the offense involves a child, or results in serious bodily harm or death, or is accompanied by a demand for ransom, or is coupled with another enumerated offense. Defenses include consent, insufficient movement, insufficient evidence and false allegation
False imprisonment is defined as unlawfully restraining, detaining, or confining a person against his or her will. Misdemeanor false imprisonment is punishable by up to a year in jail or as a felony by up to three years in prison. These penalties can be far greater if the victim is a child, elderly, or if the offense is accomplished through violence or menace. Defenses include consent and false allegation.
