Understanding violent crimes
Violent crimes, unlike other forms of legal activities, are complicated because of the psychological and social influences behind them. Violent crimes can be traumatic for the victim and potentially confusing for the offender.
Each violent crime is dependent on the situation, and will vary from the other. Some reasons behind violent crimes could be:
- cultural goals and social structures
- socioeconomic disadvantage
- personal trauma
- Left realism (seeing yourself as disadvantaged to your peers)
- behaviour/ instinct
The complex sciences behind violent offence cases mean that these cases, in particular, can be difficult. They can be emotionally traumatic for the victim, as well as complicated and difficult for the culprit. Whether you are a victim, or an offender, the important thing with your case is to find legal representation that adequately understands you and can help your specific situation
how can a lawyer help with your violent offence case?
It can be very daunting for individuals who are facing violent offence charges as the law surrounding violent offences is complex and challenging to understand. Furthermore, violent offence charges are punishable by imprisonment. Therefore, it is vital you receive expert representation to avoid having a weak case.
Whatever your situation, if you are in the criminal investigation process, you may be arrested without notice or being asked to attend the police station. It is therefore vital you seek specialist legal advice early on and avoid answering any police questions. It is difficult for individuals to answer essential questions in a police interview when the offence involves a partner or family member. Therefore, you must seek advice as a lawyer will be able to advise you on what questions to answer.
Using a criminal litigation lawyer will ensure that you have a strong case as they are able to represent you in an objective manner without emotion. Furthermore, they are able to assess the evidence at hand and can analyse if a piece of evidence which has led to your investigation was obtained unlawfully.
