A crime is considered violent when it puts the safety and health of others in public or private settings in grave danger. A violent crime charge is considered an extremely serious offense.
Violent crime is composed of four offenses: Murder and non-negligent Manslaughter, Rape, Robbery, and Aggravated Assault to cause serious injury to any person or group of people.
Violent crimes include but are not limited to:
- Aggravated assault
- Domestic violence
- Assault by threat
- Offensive physical contact to cause bodily harm
- Assault of a public servant
- Assault with a deadly weapon
Courts go through due process to achieve a final verdict. Penalties range from fines all the way up to capital punishment. These penalties can have a serious, negative effect on the person convicted and devastating effects on the accused’s family members and their friends. In severe cases, long prison sentences can prevent you from seeing your children or loved ones ever again!
