Penalties for a Violent Crime Conviction in Edmonds

The courts in our area are tough on violent offenders, and if you have been arrested for a crime such as assault or domestic violence, you are at risk of receiving a tough penalty.

Don't take any chances with the outcome of this situation-let an experienced Edmonds criminal defense attorney from my firm fight to clear your name and defend your future.

State law categorizes assault into four degrees, with simple assaults carrying a penalty of up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine, and first-degree assault-which involves the use of a firearm or deadly weapon, administering a poison, or inflicting great bodily harm-being punishable by up to $50,000 in fines and a life sentence in prison. A domestic violence arrest can additionally subject you to a no contact order which could force you out of your home and make it difficult or even impossible to visit with your children.
