Understanding the Charge Against You
Violent crimes are criminal acts that involve the direct use or threat of violence, such as an assault or domestic violence. In Lawrenceville and all of Gwinnett County, violent crimes are severely punished and are always vigorously prosecuted by all levels of law enforcement.

Allegations of violent crimes are, however, one of those crime-types that are extremely vulnerable to exaggeration and fabrication.
