    Crime in Victorville
    Like many places in California, the Victorville area is a geographically diverse region whose character varies considerably by neighborhood. While some areas like Spring Valley Lake are considered quite safe, other regions are notable hotspots of criminal activity.

    • One of the most common crimes in Victorville is theft. The term theft can cover a wide range of criminal activity but is generally divided into “petty” theft, a misdemeanor charge which involves the confiscation of property valued at under $950, and “grand” theft, a criminal charge, which involves taking property worth over $950 or stealing a car or firearms.
    • Burglary, a more serious form of theft, is also common in the city. Burglary involves entering a building, home, or vehicle with intent to commit a felony. It is a less serious but more common crime than robbery, which involves taking another person’s personal property using force, violence, or intimidation.
    • Another frequent crime in Victorville is assault, defined by state law as an “attempt, coupled with a present ability, to commit a violent injury on the person of another.” Like theft, the punishment for assault varies considerably based on the severity of the crime and is harshly punished when committed with a deadly weapon.
    • Vandalism, DUI arrests, and drug crimes are also common in Victorville and carry varying degrees of criminal charges.
    • Less common crimes in the area include rape, murder, and kidnapping. These are considered more serious by the state of California and require a vigorous legal defense.

    Depending on the nature of the crime you stand accused of committing, you may be looking at substantial jail time or serious fines that can upset your financial stability. In addition, just by being arrested, you may suffer other personal hardships. You may be fired from your job or lose custody of your children even if you are innocent of the charges and haven’t been convicted. It can be a terrifying ordeal and one that you should not have to face alone.

    What an Experienced Victorville Criminal Defense Attorney Can Do
    First, an experienced defense attorney will work vigorously to gather all the evidence that can help paint your case in a favorable light. Then the council will work with the prosecution to get your case dismissed or to come up with the best possible plea bargain that will spare you having to go to trial. If the case does end up going to court, your lawyer will fight tirelessly to win your case. An experienced attorney will craft the ideal trial defense, creating a compelling narrative for you while discrediting the prosecution’s case.
