Information on Violent Crimes Charges

"Violent crimes" is a label that is given to any crime where physical force is used against another individual unlawfully. It indicates to prosecutors, judges and juries that the alleged perpetrator is reckless, erratic, and may be a danger to others. When facing violent crimes charges, you will likely be given a stiffer penalty than for a nonviolent charge if convicted. In most cases, violent crimes are considered felony crimes, but in certain circumstances, depending on the severity of the crime, they can be tried as simple misdemeanors. Whether classified as felonies or misdemeanors, violent crimes are very serious and demand the attention of experienced defense lawyers.

The most common violent crimes include the following:

  • Homicide/Murder
  • Attempted murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Rape
  • Child molestation
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Assault with a weapon
  • Battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Stalking
  • Child abuse
  • Kidnapping

Penalties for Violent Crimes

Crimes that involve physical assault and other violent acts often carry serious penalties and are typically charged as felonies. Violent crime charges can be punishable with monetary fines and extended time in prison.

In addition, if you are convicted, you could face difficulty in your personal and professional life. You may encounter difficulty with employment or housing opportunities, as potential employers and landlords often conduct background checks during the application process.
