Different situations and events could wind up causing individuals in Mississippi and elsewhere to face criminal allegations. This is never an easy predicament to be in, especially when the accused is adamant that they did not commit the crime they are accused of. Being accused of a violent crime has the ability to harm ones reputation regardless if they are convicted; therefore, it is imperative that defendants understand their legal defense options and how they could assert a strong defense.
Violent crimes can vary in degrees and could involve loved ones, acquaintances or strangers. Depending on the details and circumstances surrounding the supposed crime, the accused offender could endure personal consequences based on just allegations alone. At Cynthia A. Stewart, P.A., our experienced legal team is well versed in criminal laws, and we are dedicated to helping Madison residents develop and strategize the best defense possible for their matter.
Our goal is to give our clients a full perspective of their situation. This means breaking down the charges they are facing, what penalties they carry and what defense options are likely available. We have experience working on a wide variety of violent crimes cases.
Whether you are facing allegations of assault, aggravated assault, battery, domestic abuse, manslaughter or murder, our skilled legal team will consider the evidence used against you and the elements of the crime. If the state is unable to prove all the elements of the crime, a defendant cannot be convicted of that crime. Thus, we diligently comb through all the details of your case, finding ways to suppress evidence and poke holes in the state's case. This ultimately could result in charges being reduced or dismissed.
