Michael R. DalSanto
Attorney at Law

For those who are innocent, it's tempting to want to tell the authorities your side of the story in the hopes of being exonerated, but it actually might be in your best interests to stay silent and only speak on recommendation of your attorney. Speaking to others can actually damage your case, even when you are innocent. You can face serious prison time and fines if you are convicted, so you should tread carefully and follow the advice of the seasoned criminal law attorney.

It is very important to understand your rights when you are accused.

If you are charged with a violent crime, call Attorney Michael DalSanto ​today at 614-290-4638  to schedule a no-cost consultation.

Special Defenses for Murder, Homicide and Assault

If you have been accused of one of these crimes, bear in mind that particular defenses may apply. Self defense, for example, is one common example that can hinge on pertinent details about your role in the act. Other possible defenses that might apply in your case are coercion, an alibi, or insanity. To learn more about whether these defenses are applicable for you and how they might help you, speak with your Ohio violent crimes attorney immediately.

Common Violent Crime Charges

  • ​Misdemeanor assault
  • Assault felony charges
  • Theft, robbery, burglary
  • Aggravated menacing
  • Stalking/Harassment
  • Manslaughter
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Weapons offenses and violations

In Ohio, violent crimes are taken very seriously by prosecuting attorneys. Generally, county offices will make an effort to assign the best and most successful prosecutors to cases where violent crimes are involved. This, matched with the penalties associated with homicide, murder, assault and other violent offenses, is why you need an attorney on your side. If the government resources are going to be working hard to convict you, you need an Ohio criminal defense attorney that works just as hard to represent your interests and your side of the story.
