Arrested for a Non-Violent Crime in San Diego?

Put Attorney Thomas Slattery on Your Side – Call (619) 374-1268

Criminal offenses can typically be classified into two primary categories: violent and non-violent, depending on the nature of the crime. Violent crimes are typically considered more serious and, if charged as felonies, fall under California’s Three Strikes and You’re Out law, which imposes increased penalties for repeat violent felony offenses. Non-violent crimes may not be classified as strikes, but they carry harsh penalties. A conviction for a non-violent felony will still carry a prison sentence and can significantly impact every area of an alleged offender’s life.
