Again today we demonstrate why it is important to put forward a violent crimes defense.  Our client was charged with domestic assault and interfering with an emergency phone call.  Our evaluation of the case was that he would likely be convicted by a jury of the interfering with a phone call.  However, it was very important to not be convicted of a domestic assault.  That conviction would eliminate gun rights the second amendment be damned.  We were able to resolve the case without the spectre of a conviction for a domestic, in a way that will result in NO CONVICTION of any kind on his record.  We prepared vigoursly for trial and were ready to go with a valid defense argument on the assaults, but the 911 call was a potential problem. Our client was very happy to have a strong violent crimes defense team on his side.  One has to remember that there are a number of defenses that can be raised at trial.  Aggressively approaching the case with a defense in mind can help to get an outcome that is acceptable or an acquital at trial.  The violent crimes defense team at Giancola-Durkin explores all the possiblities in these typs of case.
