Georgetown, Tx Assault Criminal Defense Attorney
Tough Williamson county prosecutors place strong emphasis on prosecuting Assault charges. The consequences of an assault conviction can be very serious–affecting you long after you have served time or completed a probation for the offense. You may have thought that once the sentence was served that the punishment was over, but the effects of criminal convictions continue for the rest of your life. The results of an assault conviction can have a disastrous effect on your life, making it difficult to get housing, a job or pursue higher education opportunities.
Very often in assault cases police believe the story of either the first person to tell them what happened or the person with the more serious injuries. This is particularly true in a large town like Austin, where the police are pressured to quickly close cases and move on to the next situation. Police don't have time to sort out conflicting claims, or get to the bottom of a complicated situation. Instead, the quickest way for them to defuse a situation is to decide who is the "bad guy" and take that person to jail.
Russ knows that just because a person gets to the police first, or just because a person lost a fight, does not make their story more true than anyone else's.
Russ investigates each and every assault case, whether it is a felony assault with a weapon, an assault where serious bodily injury was caused, a family violence case, or a simple assault, with an eye toward establishing his client's innocence. As opposed to the police who want to defuse the situation, make an arrest and move on to the next situation, Russ works hard on your individual case to fight for your rights and obtain the best results for you.
