Physically Violent Crimes
In situations involving violent crimes, investigators will most often suspect family members, friends, romantic partners, or co-workers first. This is because violent crimes usually involve some sort of emotional attachment to the victim. Because of this, police may frequently overlook alternative leads, suspects, and other important evidence. Physically violent crimes include assault, assault on a female, assault with a deadly weapon, communicating threats, and domestic violence crimes.
Don’t let yourself become a suspect in a crime in which you were not involved based solely on circumstantial evidence. Contact The Law Offices of Ronald J. Shook immediately so that we can assist you in maintaining your innocence.
In cases involving violence, remaining silent is your best option. Attempting to explain yourself to police can often shift suspicion onto you, and anything that you say may later be used against you at trial. Please remember that if you have been arrested, or you are being investigated for a violent crime, remain silent, and ask for a lawyer.
