Arrested for a Non-Violent Crime in San Diego?

Put Attorney Thomas Slattery on Your Side - Call (619) 304-9190

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.

Our team represents defendants and arrestees across San Diego in the face of non-violent offenses, such as:

  • DUI (driving under the influence)
  • Shoplifting and petty theft
  • Fraud, embezzlement, and other white collar crimes
  • Drug possession, sale, and distribution
  • Prescription drug crimes
  • Public intoxication
  • Traffic violations

Defending clients against non-violent crimes is an important part of our legal practice at Premier Criminal Defense, LLC. This category of offenses includes life-changing penalties, including imprisonment and heavy fines, and a defendant is entitled to criminal defense counsel to ensure his or her rights are fully protected.


    Facing any of the above or other criminal charges? Your future is on the line. Act quickly and call (619) 304-9190 for a no-cost case evaluation.
