About Violent Crimes

A misdemeanor crime can become a felony when the element of force enters into the circumstances of the offense. Types of violent crimes are murder, manslaughter, assault, assault & battery, aggravated assault or assault with a deadly weapon, domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, kidnapping, carjacking and other types of serious crimes. The penalties for violent crimes can be significant and can include:
  • Term in state or federal prison
  • Probation
  • Community service
  • Victim impact classes
  • Fines and court costs
  • Counseling and rehabilitation

Some factors that can affect the punishment imposed by a judge are prior offenses, involvement of minors, gang-related activities, weapons use, and other circumstances of the criminal act. A prosecutor presents evidence of a violent crime and must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the offense. Most cases rely on witness statements, victim statements, police reports, and forensics. A defense lawyer can challenge all evidence as well as warrants and arrest procedures. The use of experts when countering evidence is sometimes necessary in providing a good defense.

A convicted criminal faces the loss of certain rights and freedoms. It can be difficult to find employment and certain jobs are unavailable to those with a criminal past.
