DuPage County Violent Crimes Attorney

Serious Crimes Require Dedicated Representation

Criminal charges for violent crimes are serious. If found guilty, the penalties are considerable. Quite simply, life as you know it may never be the same.

That said, the circumstances surrounding any crime of violence are complex. For a violent crimes defense attorney, taking into account the entirety of the situation that leads to the violence is critical. Actions don’t happen in a vacuum, and contributing factors matter. Charges that arise out of intimidating, threatening or physically harmful actions are determined by a wide range of factors. Was a weapon involved? Was the crime sexual in nature? Was self-defense a factor? The answers to these questions can weigh heavily on your case.

If you have been charged with a violent crime, or will be, you need to protect yourself and your future.

Engaging the services of an experienced and reputable violent crime lawyer is critical.

At Wolfe & Stec, Ltd., we believe everyone involved in the criminal justice system deserves what the law dictates — fair representation and the assumption of innocence until proven guilty. Unfortunately, the accused are often treated differently when they are investigated or arrested for a violent crime.

The laws relating to violent crimes in Illinois are outlined in the Illinois Compiled Statutes Criminal Code of 2012. Because of their complexity and the potentially serious impact they can have on your life, working with a well-regarded violent crimes defense attorney is wise.

Penalties Can Be Significant

Those convicted of violent crimes in Illinois face serious consequences. In fact, many of the sentences for those convicted of violent crimes can have a lasting impact that extends far beyond the accused.

The more serious the crime, the greater the penalty.

Sentences can range from 30 days to life in prison. Even once released, convicted individuals may face probation, supervision and fines. Aggravating factors can play a role in your sentence.

The Crime Victims Compensation Act, which was established in 1973, provides an avenue for victims of violent crimes to be reimbursed for their costs. This reimbursement can be considerable.

Our DuPage County violent crimes attorney is well-aware of the penalties and will leverage their knowledge and experience while defending you.
