WHETHER YOU ARE CELEBRITY OR NOT WHEN YOU TAKE THE LAW INTO YOUR OWN HANDS AND ASSAULT A PHOTOGRAPHER YOU ARE GOING TO NEED A SKILLED LOS ANGELES CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY TO HELP YOU
It was reported that Kanye West was arrested for Assault with a Deadly Weapon at LAX on Thursday morning. This is a very serious charge.
Mr. West may not realize that he is facing a crime that carries a possible state prison sentence. What the District Attorney decides to file as the actual charges against Mr. West will depend in part upon his prior criminal record and what the police reports state. It is extremely important that he retain an experienced criminal defense law firm NOW so that the law firm can attempt to meet with the District Attorney and try to convince them to reduce the charges to simple misdemeanor assault before Mr. West appears in court.
If Mr. West faces a felony charge then he must appear at all court hearings or a warrant will likely issue for his arrest. For an artist like Mr. West this will likely be financially devastating to him. However, if his lawyers can have the charges reduced to a misdemeanor then he will not have to appear in court.
Wallin and Klarich will monitor this case closely and update our blog readers on how the case progresses and whether in fact it appears that the evidence indicates that Mr. West is likely guilty or not guilty of the charges.
