Violent Felonies

At the Law Offices of Omar Gastelum and Associates, APLC, our experienced criminal defense attorneys zealously stand up for the rights of those under investigation and/or who have been charged with violent felonies.

Violent Felonies

California police and prosecutors – spurred on by overwhelming public pressures – often devote their full resources to pursuing and prosecuting those suspected of violent felonies. They will often do whatever it takes to work towards convictions in violent felony cases, even if it means trampling on the rights of defendants and suspects and trying to railroad them through unfair criminal proceedings.

At the Law Offices of Omar Gastelum and Associates, PLC, we provide judgment-free representation to all of our clients and are fully committed to using every resource at our disposal in service of protecting our clients’ rights and winning them the best possible outcome in their violent felony matter.

Zealous Defense of Californians in all Violent Felony Cases

Our criminal defense attorneys have worked with men and women of all backgrounds to defend them in criminal investigations and charges, and will work zealously to defend you in all California state and federal charges related to the following criminal charges, among others:

  • First- and second-degree murder (including felony murder)
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Involuntary manslaughter
  • Carjacking
  • Robbery
  • Assault
  • Sexual assault and rape
  • Burglary when a victim is present
  • Kidnapping
  • Arson

Under California law, you can be charged with a violent felony even if you yourself did not commit the crime under the theory of accomplice liability or as a co-conspirator if prosecutors believe that you either assisted or encouraged the crime or entered into an agreement with another party to a crime. Regardless of how you are charged, our attorneys will aggressively defend your rights to avoid or minimize criminal liability.

Get Experienced Legal Counsel From the Earliest Sign of a Criminal Inquiry

It should come as no surprise that a conviction for a violent felony crime in California can mean decades in state prison, and, under the state’s notorious “three strikes” law, those convicted of multiple violent felonies can face a life sentence behind bars.

While the stakes are enormous, remember that prosecutors must prove every element of a violent charge beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury of your peers before you can be convicted. But all too often, suspects in violent felony investigations give up their rights and due incredible damage to themselves by attempting to deal with police and prosecutors on their own without legal assistance. Do not make this mistake.

Don’t Give Up Your Constitutional Rights

You have a right against self-incrimination (meaning you do not have to provide the police with any information) as well as a right to counsel under the U.S. Constitution. This means that, whenever you are confronted by police regarding a violent felony or any other matter, you have: 1) the right to refuse to answer any questions, and 2) the right to demand to have an attorney present during all questioning, regardless of whether you have been arrested, charged with a crime, or read your rights.
