Consider options when mandatory minimum sentences are present

Violent crimes are some of the most serious crimes that are handled in the criminal justice system. These charges often come with the possibility of serious penalties. When you are charged with a violent crime, such as murder, rape or assault, you need to explore the options that you have for a defense.

Some convictions have mandatory minimum sentences that you have to think about. These sentences are some that the judge can't overrule. If there is a conviction on a charge that has a mandatory minimum sentence, that is the lowest sentence that can be imposed upon conviction.

It is difficult to think that you might have to suffer a sentence that might not be fair simply because the law says that you have to. Mandatory minimum sentences don't take the circumstances of the crime into account, so there isn't any discretion in the sentencing phase.

We understand that you are probably worried about having to face the mandatory minimum sentence if there is one for your charge. We can help you to find out if there are alternative ways that we can handle the case. One of these might be a plea deal that can get you a lesser charge that might not have the mandatory minimum sentence.

We need to think carefully about all of the options that you have when you are facing a violent crime charge. These are often very complex cases. The more complex the case, the longer it will take us to determine how to respond the accusations that are made against you. Be sure that you get going as quickly as possible after the charges are levied.
