Misdemeanor And Felony Charge Defense

In California, certain violent crimes can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, which expose the accused to punishments ranging from county jail to state prison. Some of these offenses can be charged as «strikes,» which means an accused could face a doubling of the punishment prescribed, or even life in prison, depending upon the background of the accused.

For felony convictions there is a lifetime ban on the ownership, use or possession of firearms, and for specified misdemeanor crimes of violence, a 10-year ban. In any case, the lawyers at Rien, Adams & Cox, LLP, will conduct a thorough investigation into your case, develop a cohesive strategy of defense, and vigorously defend you in court.
