The process of being charged with a crime can have a person feeling scared and unsure of their rights. Unfortunately, this uncertainty can leave them vulnerable to a variety of malpractices by law enforcement, resulting in incrimination without due process.

Theft and weapons violations are both serious matters and although you may be unaware of it, guns are not the only objects that can be classified as “weapons”. Everyday items like baseball bats or tools can also be considered weapons. A strong criminal attorney like Jeffrey Hammond helps clients defend against weapons charges as well as many other kinds of felonies to ensure law enforcement followed proper procedures from the beginning to end.
Jeffrey Hammond has a well documented history of successfully defending against various degrees of weapons and theft charges:
- Car/Vehicle Theft
- Firearm in Vehicle
- Carrying a knife on school property

It is important to know that if your theft charge is classified as a misdemeanor such as petty theft, you can appoint your defense attorney to appear for you at your first court appearance. This will prevent you from having to miss any work you may have on that day.
Your rights as a person do not terminate if you’ve been charged with a crime and you cannot risk putting your freedom in jeopardy with an inexperienced Napa defense attorney.
