Prince George's County Officer Charged With Assault

According to the head of the Police Department, a local Prince George's County officer was arrested recently for assault with a deadly weapon in DC and has been placed on unpaid administrative leave. He was off duty at the time of incident.

The nature of the incident was not revealed in the report. The officer involved will be returning to Washington later this month to face the charges. There is no word yet on the nature of his criminal defense.

Defending against assault with a deadly weapon charge is serious business in its own right. The threat of jail time is compounded by losing one's job and ability to make a living. Nevertheless, criminal charges have a way of souring things at work.

As a result, those accused of a crime are encouraged to confront their defense with a comprehensive strategy. Financial and work concerns may very well play into how a defense will be presented. Challenging criminal charges in court may not be the only concern as other aspects of the accused's life are put in jeopardy.

Local Upper Marlboro defense attorneys understand the complexities involved with a criminal prosecution and the need for creative solutions. Those accused can discuss their options, from engaging in plea negotiations directed at resolving the conflict to going to court and fighting their case.

From satisfying employment terms to maneuvering jail and restitution requirements, local defense attorneys can help those charged with a crime control the process and avoid penalties which unnecessarily affect other aspects of their lives.
