Whether you're guilty or not, facing charges for a violent crime can be extremely stressful and worrisome. From robbery to domestic abuse charges there may be ways to lower these charges or get them dismissed outright. Many times the police are eager to take some type of action when they are called out for an incident. This can lead to mistakes on their report - from misinformation to missing information. These mistakes can lead to serious consequences for you. Consequences that you may not see coming nor should have to face. Consequences that could change your life forever.
