How Our Attorney Can Help After Conviction

If you or a loved one have been convicted of a violent offense, our attorney can help, even after the trial. At the Dixon Justice Center, we can:

  • Work to expunge your conviction. In California, you can expunge multiple misdemeanor and felony charges. Visit our expungement page to find out more about how we can help you seek a fresh start.
  • Help those serving time for three-strike law offenses lessen their sentences. The California three strike law maintains that a person who commits three serious or violent felonies must spend 25 years to life in prison. Since its original passing, the three-strike law has changed significantly, and there are many offenses that used to be strikable but now are not. Amendments to the law provide avenues for people serving a three-strike sentence to petition to reduce their sentences, specifically when they are serving time for an offense that is no longer strikable.

To schedule a free consultation to discuss how our attorney can help you, even after a ruling has been made, contact us. We serve clients in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, and throughout Orange County.

Types of Violent Crimes & Penalties

  • Kidnapping: the act of moving another person a significant distance without their consent by using force and/or fear. Kidnapping is a felony and can result in up to eight years in prison, or eleven years if the victim is younger than fourteen.
  • Attempted murder: when a person harms or injures another with the intent to kill them. A person can spend up to life in prison if convicted of this felony charge.
  • Murder: when one individual intentionally and unlawfully kills another. The state divides murder into first and second degree. First degree murder is premeditated, while second degree is not. The prosecution can also bring murder charges against people who caused a fatal car accident while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, in addition to instances where a person committed another felony crime that caused someone‚Äôs death. The penalty for a murder conviction can be up to life in prison.
  • Assault with a deadly weapon: when someone intentionally causes harm to another with a deadly weapon or with great enough force to cause serious injury. A misdemeanor charge for this violation can result in a year in jail and up to $10,000 in fines. A felony conviction can lead to four years in jail and the same amount in fines.
  • Assault: intentionally performing an action such as punching or kicking that would result in physical impact to the victim. Assault charges can result in penalties of up to six months in jail and a fine of $1,000.
  • Battery: this charge is slightly different than assault in that it requires only that a person apply contact or force to another. Something like grabbing another person violently could constitute battery. If convicted of this charge, a person could be looking at six months in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.

If you are under investigation for any of the above charges, or if a prosecution team has already brought charges against you, seek the help of our Los Angeles violent crimes lawyer at the Dixon Justice Center. Our attorney can work with you to examine the facts and evidence of your case and work hard to defend you against these serious charges.
