Assault Crimes in Kalamazoo – Juvenile Assault Defense Attorney
There are a number of assault crimes a person can be charged with in Kalamazoo. If your case is heard in juvenile court, a division of family court, you will not face an official criminal charge, but rather a delinquency action. Still, these delinquency actions punish the same offenses that would bring assault charges under criminal law, and oftentimes sentences will increase in severity similarly to assault offense increases under the Penal Code.
Simple assault, assault causing aggravated injury, assault with a deadly weapon, assault with intent to cause great bodily harm, assault with intent to murder, and other related offenses are all extremely serious, and you should never try to defend yourself without at least speaking to a lawyer first. Additionally, it is key that you never speak to police or investigators before you have legal counsel present. While you might fell absolutely sure you can convince the investigators that you did nothing wrong, it is far more effective to say nothing at all until you have a lawyer with you. Our team is available 24/7 so that you don’t have to wait to begin fighting back, so call or contact us online now.
Juvenile Assault Offenses
In juvenile cases, it is very difficult to predict what the sentence could be, provided the case stays in the juvenile court system. Since most cases involving offenders under the age of 17 are heard in these special courts, there are a variety of potential penalties that could result, but will depend completely on the specifics of the case. These penalties will likely include rehabilitative considerations, potential restoration, and institutionalization in the most serious cases. Apologies, community service, fines, education, mandatory self-improvement courses, probation, and more are all common, and only by working with a lawyer can you better understand what will be at stake in your case, and what options you have as you progress through your battle for justice.
The Grabel & Associates team understands that juvenile cases are extremely time sensitive, which is why we are always ready to begin working on your case. You may be facing a waiver to adult court and not even know it, especially in a violent crime or assault case where such waivers are more common, and our lawyers can protect you or your child from this starting as soon as you contact our team. Additionally, we know the difference that individualized defense throughout the process can make, and we will never stop fighting for your rights and defending your freedom as your case moves forward.
