Defending Against Violent Crime Charges in Rhode Island

If you are suspected of murder, aggravated assault or another violent crime, an experienced criminal defense attorney can secure your rights. A skilled lawyer will not only look for ways to get the charges against you reduced or dismissed but will also focus on developing an effective criminal defense trial strategy.


At the Law Offices of Robert J. Caron, I have a substantial background defending clients accused of violent crimes in Rhode Island.


My ability to work with the facts in plea negotiations can turn a weak defense into a strong one. In my experience, a creative approach to your defense strategy can result in a sentence of probation or work release, even on a felony plea.


As a starting point for an effective defense strategy, I will evaluate the police report, witness statements and any physical evidence. I take my approach a step further through identifying creative solutions by focusing on the actual risk of punishment you are currently facing. The threat of prison will probably be based as much on your prior record as it will be on the facts of the current criminal charges.

My firm handles cases involving all types of criminal allegations, including:


  • Assault and assault with a deadly weapon
  • Murder, attempted murder and manslaughter
  • Weapons offenses
  • Kidnapping and false imprisonment
  • Armed robbery
  • Criminal threats
  • Gang crimes
  • Resisting arrest and assault on a police officer
  • Domestic violence

If weaknesses in the government’s case mean that you stand a good chance of success at trial, I will aggressively represent your interests before a jury. If the evidence against you makes a trial too risky, we will advise you and work with all parties — including prosecutors, probation officers, court services and community agencies — to show that you are an excellent candidate for favorable treatment.
