YOUR CHICAGO CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER
Aggravated Battery and Attempted Murder
Crimes of violence carry very long prison sentences which may be lengthened if a gun is involved. You can be charged with Aggravated Battery for simply shoving a police officer or even a bar fight. If a gun is used, the State will almost certainly charge you with Attempt Murder, even if the person is not hit. Prison sentences are lengthened from 15-25 years if someone is accused of using a gun.
