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.
A vigorous Sex Crimes Defense is crucial to a good outcome in any case where you may be charged with committing innaproriate behavior. Even a Gross Misdemeanor sex crime Crimes Defense is important because of the potential collateral consequences. In a recent case we were able to show that the client was not a predator, did not have agressive or criminal propensities and was a good candidate for elective therapies instead of sex offender treatment. It was imperitive in our case to have a solid Psychosexual evaluation done which showed our client was appropriate for a disposition that did not includea sex crime of any kind. In today's political climate people are all to quick to allege that a crime has been committed. Especially a sex crime. If this kind of charge is brought against you remember we have handled cases like this in Anoka, Hennepin, Wright, Isanti, Sherburne, Carver, and other counties throughout Minnesota. A first Degree sex crime carries a 144 month sentence to prison at a minimum. In certain cases the Judge can go above that if it is found that there are aggravating circumstances.
