  • Attempted murder and murder

  • Assault and battery cases, including assault and battery first, second and third degree
  • Aggravated assault and battery
  • Burglary and robbery cases
  • Armed robbery
  • Kidnapping
  • Weapons violations

A conviction for any of these crimes can result in going to jail for many years, depending on the offense. When defending a crime such as this, it is essential to review the evidence to ensure the State has charged the appropriate offense instead of a higher-level offense.
