Crimes Against a Person
Criminal Defense Lawyer in Long Beach
Crimes against a person can mean many different types of charges. These
include, but are not limited to:
The violent nature of these crimes and the way they are generally looked
upon by society has brought about stiff penalties for those that are convicted.
The reality of this comes home when a defendant is found guilty and their
life is forever changed for the worst. Attorney Leonard Matsuk has the
hard-won experience that a skilled
Long Beach criminal defense attorney should have in order to protect your rights and provide you with a successful defense.
The term "person", in law, is interpreted as the freedom of an
individual to move about willfully and refers to the integrity and health
of the body. If an individual imprisons or harms another's person
wrongfully, this is considered a crime. At times, just the threat of harm
can be a crime of this nature and will be prosecuted as such. Attempting
to harm another, even if the attempt is not successful, can be a crime
against a person.
Coming to Your Defense in Long Beach
The punishments and penalties for these crimes vary greatly according to
what was done, any prior convictions and other circumstances. Jail or
prison time will be a likely consequence of conviction. In severe cases,
life in prison with or without the possibility of parole can await an
individual who is found guilty. A murder charge with special allegations
can result in the death penalty. Stiff fines and permanent criminal records
commonly accompany convictions of crimes against a person.
Solely because you are accused of the crime, does not mean you will be
found guilty. Thorough investigation of your case can reveal improper
actions on the part of law enforcement. Review of the evidence may show
flaws that can be exposed in the prosecutor's case. With over 30 years
of experience in Long Beach and the surrounding areas and over 300 cases
brought before judges and juries, Leonard Matsuk would like to put his
experience to work for you.
