Experienced Defense For Aggravated Offenses
The penalties for criminal charges can quickly escalate if the charge becomes an aggravated crime. You need a skilled attorney on your side against aggravated offense charges to protect your future.
At Weldon Law Firm, we have more than a decade of experience representing clients around Georgia facing a wide range of aggravated offense charges. Our founding lawyer has extensive experience on both the defense side and the prosecution side. This knowledge gives our clients an invaluable edge against these damaging charges.
What Are The Factors Of An Aggravated Crime?
We represent clients against all types of aggravated offenses, including the common charges of:
- Aggravated assault, which includes intended robbery or homicide
- Aggravated battery, or the intent to physically harm someone
- Aggravated stalking, usually involving the violation of a restraining order
The penalties for these charges often include paying serious fines, serving time in jail as well as compensating the alleged victim. However, there are several factors the prosecution must prove first to raise felony or misdemeanor charges to aggravated status, including:
- The use of a weapon
- The status of the victim, including age or occupation
- The severity of the injuries
- If it was a hate crime
There are other factors that can lead to an aggravated offense charge, and the prosecution only has to prove one of them for a conviction. That is why it is critical to retain a defense attorney who knows how the prosecution operates.
We Evaluate The Details Of The Situation
As a former prosecutor, attorney Thomas Darrell Weldon Jr. knows how approach these charges. He examines every detail of your situation, such as:
- Whether you acted in self defense
- If the other person was the aggressor
- If you were defending another person
- How credible the accusation is
We investigate the charges against you ourselves so we can craft a solid defense on your behalf.
