What is Considered a Violent Crime?

When an individual faces a conviction for a violent crime, they are at risk for significant punishment that impacts them for the rest of their life. Criminal accusations require the assistance of a tenacious and experienced trial attorney.

We prioritize your comprehension and work hard to help you pursue the results you need.

Violent crimes are defined as incidents in which a person threatens, attempts to, or actually inflicts bodily harm to another person or property. Homicides are the most serious of violent crimes, as they involve the killing of another person. Homicide is charged as a deliberate killing, such as murder, or involuntary manslaughter in the case that the killing was negligent.

The most severe homicide charges include murder and manslaughter, and they can lead to long jail sentences or even the death penalty. Involuntary manslaughter, which is a violent crime committed without the intent to kill or cause serious bodily harm, can also result in a long jail sentence. These matters require immediate evaluation from a criminal defense attorney.  Our law office handles all of the following violent criminal charges:

  • Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Robbery
  • Battery
  • Carjacking
  • Confinement
  • Intimidation
  • Gun Charges

The Importance of Working with a Criminal Defense Attorney

A violent crime’s classification relies on several factors specific to the case, such as the severity of the victim’s injuries, whether or not weapons or guns were used and if the suspected offender has a criminal record. In many cases, a violent crime against people and their property is the result of severe anger or an overwhelming disregard for another person’s worth and rights. As a result, the jury or judge may perceive the crime to have a higher level of severity.

A criminal defense attorney has the knowledge needed to carefully navigate your case. Since violent crimes often result in severe sentences, don’t hesitate to work with our team. We can help you better understand the situation you are in and how the criminal justice process works. By doing so, you can explore every option and see which path leads you to an optimal outcome.
