Penalties for a Violent Crime Conviction

What Are The PENALTIES For A Violent Crime CONVICTION In Arkansas?

Trying to handle a Violent Crime charge without an attorney, or with an inexperienced attorney, can have devastating results. If a friend or family member has told you that your Violent Crime charge is “no big deal,” they do not fully understand the potential consequences of a Violent Crime charge. A Violent Crime charge can be either a misdemeanor or felony. Either way, if you plead guilty to a judge, he or she can put you in jail or, if it is a felony, in prison. Every Assault or Battery conviction exposes you to jail, and if it is a felony, to prison, as well as to fines and court costs. We have defended well-over 1,000 Violent Crime cases. Our criminal defense legal team uses that experience, and problems we find with the prosecutor’s evidence, to work toward really great outcomes for our clients. Those may include winning your case, getting dismissal of charges, keeping you out of jail, keeping charges off of your record, keeping fines low, etc.

Depending on your charge, there may be hidden costs of a Violent Crime conviction as well:

  • You may be ordered to leave your home and stay away from your family;
  • You may lose your gun rights;
  • You may lose your voting rights, if your charge is a felony;
  • You may have trouble finding an apartment or house to rent;
  • You may be fired from your current job;
  • You may have trouble getting a job in the future

No lawyer can guarantee the results of a case; however, at Norwood & Norwood, we do promise that we will fight hard to:

  • Find a way to win;
  • Get charges dismissed or reduced;
  • Keep you out of jail;
  • Keep charges off your record;

  • Keep your fines low;
  • Arrange to have you pay any fines over a period of time rather than all on your final court date.
