Violent Crimes: Serious Defense For Serious Charges

If you are facing charges of assault, murder, rape or another violent crime, you may be facing felony charges. Florida takes the prosecution of violent types of crime quite seriously and will generally prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

When your freedom is at stake, don't wait to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney. At Bodiford Law, P.A., we have the experience, expertise and aggressiveness to fight for you. We defend people charged with violent crimes in Florida, including:

  • Assault (the threat of inflicting violence) and assault with a deadly weapon
  • Battery, which is unwanted touching, and certain types of spousal abuse (domestic violence)
  • Homicide, including first- and second-degree murder as well as three types of manslaughter
  • Robbery, which is the threat or use of force while taking money or property
  • Carjacking
  • Kidnapping and false imprisonment
  • Sex crimes, including rape and child molestation
  • Child abuse

The details surrounding your charge will dictate how severe penalties may be. Punishment can include imprisonment, restitution, probation/parole, and even the death penalty. A judge may consider many factors during sentencing, such as any previous record, injuries sustained by victims, whether weapons were used in the commission of a crime and other factors.
