Washington County Violent Crime Lawyers
Protecting Your Rights And Reputation
The prosecutors in Washington County and surrounding jurisdictions of Minnesota and Wisconsin take violent crimes such as domestic assault, sexual assault and terrorist threats very seriously. If you are being investigated for a violent crime, you need experienced representation on your side — before charges are even filed, if possible.
The Thole Law Office provides experienced criminal defense for clients throughout the St. Croix River Valley charged with misdemeanor or felony crimes of a violent nature. From disorderly conduct to murder defense, we take immediate actions to protect your rights, interests and your reputation.
Experienced Stillwater Attorney For Domestic Assault Defense, Sex Crimes And Other Violent Crime Defense
Prior to opening his private practice, Washington County violent crime attorney Eric Thole worked as a felony prosecutor for Washington County for eight years, and formerly for the cities of Stillwater and Cottage Grove for four years collectively. He brings this practical trial experience and knowledge to each client’s defense. He has tried and defended a wide variety of violent crime cases, including:
- Domestic violence
- Assault/aggravated assault
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Rape and other sex crimes
- Possession of child pornography
- Internet solicitation of a minor
- Gun charges/weapons offenses
- Making terrorist threats
- Obstructing an officer or striking a police officer
- Fleeing an officer
- Disorderly conduct
- Terroristic threats
More serious felonies such as child pornography or other sex crimes require an aggressive and detailed defense, as the consequences of conviction often include mandatory prison time and lifelong registration as a sex offender. Additionally, such cases often become highly sensationalized by the media.
In all cases, we protect our clients’ privacy and take steps to minimize overly aggressive news coverage as much as possible. We seek the best possible outcome that preserves our clients’ reputation and minimizes the long-term effects of their cases.
