Types of Violent Crimes

With over a decade of legal experience, I have had defended my clients against a wide range of violent felony crimes. Crimes of this nature are taken very seriously in Massachusetts criminal courts and they are less lenient and forgiving in these cases. If you are facing a violent crime, obtaining a solid defense attorney is of the utmost importance. Your choice of legal representation could make or break your case.

I can represent you if you have been charged with a violent crime, such as:

  • Murder
  • Domestic violence
  • Manslaughter
  • Assault and battery
  • Rape
  • Aggravated Assault/Sexual Assault
  • Armed Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Manslaughter

Penalties for Violent Crimes in Massachusetts

If you are facing charges of rape or other serious violent crime, you could face very serious penalties in a conviction.

For example:

  • Murder: In section 15 of the Massachusetts laws, assaulting another with intent to commit murder or to maim the person can be punishable by up to ten years imprisonment or a fine of up to $1,000 and imprisonment for up to two years. The state laws provide a punishment of life in prison or even death for a murder conviction.
  • Robbery: In section 17, armed robbery can be punishable by up to 5 years in prison. In section 13a, assault and battery can carry a sentence of up to 21 and ½ years with a fine of $1,000.

Call a Salem, MA criminal defense lawyer today!

If you have been charged with any sort of violent crime, contact KRP Law, LLC today. You should speak with me before you make any statements to the police. I am Attorney Prendergast and I was a police officer and a prosecutor before I became a criminal defense lawyer. With my extensive background in the criminal justice system, I am uniquely qualified to handle criminal defense cases.

I am very familiar with police investigation procedure and the court system. Often an effective defense involves taking legal action to get illegally obtained evidence suppressed. That means the prosecutor cannot use the evidence in his case against you. This would be possible if the investigating officer violated the laws regarding the collection of evidence or correct police procedure was not followed in the arrest process. I have great insight into all of these issues which can be of great benefit to you in the defense of your case.
