Birk Baumgartner will take the necessary time to learn about the facts of the case and the people involved in the assault, including the alleged victim. And these cases require examining witnesses and the skills of a good trial lawyer are put to the test.
WHY YOU NEED REPRESENTATION NOW
Felony Assault Charges require knowledgeable professional
representation in order to preserve the
rights that you have
, and to effectively fight back against your accuser.
You should never speak to the District Attorney or any investigator,
including the police, because anything that you say will be used against you.
The number one mistake that accused people make is to try to
convince the police or the District Attorney that they are innocent. The DA and
the police use these statements against the accused every time. Often, their
statements are twisted and misconstrued into admissions of guilt. Only an
experienced attorney should discuss your case with the DA or the police, and
often these discussions lead to a reduction or dismissal of the charges.
Penalties for assault can range from six months in county
jail to many years in the Department of Corrections. Additionally, some crimes
carry mandatory sentences to the State Department of Corrections. The
sentencing schemes that the Colorado Legislature enacted are complex, and the
District Attorney will always “overcharge” Defendants, because they anticipate
the possibility of a plea bargain. However, the District Attorney will only
give you a “bargain” if you have an attorney who knows how to force it out of
them. If you try to go it alone, you will not get a reasonable plea bargain.
