Arguments with a friend, a spouse, or even a stranger at a bar can sometimes get out of hand. In fact, they can escalate to the point of no return. A fist is swung, a kick is thrown, the next thing you know you are in handcuffs being escorted to the local police station. Things aren’t looking so well. If you face charges for a violent crime like assault, domestic assault, battery, or other violent offense in Louisiana, you need to seek the expertise of a criminal defense attorney like Eric G. Johnson of The John D. & Eric G. Johnson Law Firm, LLC.
Defending Violent Criminal Charges in Louisiana
What can a criminal defense lawyer like Eric do for you? A Louisiana violent crime attorney is a prime asset in keeping you from experiencing the worst penalties imaginable following charges of a violent crime. A conviction for a violent crime carries a greater impact on a person’s life than any nonviolent criminal offense. If you are ever convicted of a violent crime in Louisiana, you could lose your right to carry or purchase a firearm legally. Additionally, a conviction can:
- Impact child custody decisions
- Prevent you from living in certain areas
- Make it difficult to obtain higher education
- Strip you of financial aid
- Prevent you from pursuing a desired profession
- Not be expunged from your criminal record
Misdemeanor and felony convictions can lead to severe penalties that can uproot your life and influence your future for many years to come. Generally, a conviction for a misdemeanor or felony violent crime can lead to:
- Months to years in jail or prison
- Steep fines and court fees
- Permanent criminal record
Your voting rights may also be impacted if you are convicted of a felony offense.
