Types of Violent Crimes
Violent crimes may include actions of actual or implied violence. Depending on the situation, these actions may involve verbal or physical threats, physical force, and bodily attacks.
Examples of violent crimes our legal team is prepared to handle include:
- Assault / Aggravated Assault
- Sexual Assault
- Armed Robbery
- Domestic Violence
Violent crime charges and penalties can be greatly enhanced if there are aggravating circumstances present in a case, including the presence or use of a weapon and causing injury or death to a victim. Penalties may also be enhanced if a defendant has a criminal history. Our attorneys closely review each unique case to determine the best course of action and to secure the most favorable resolution.
Because violent crimes are considered offenses that threaten public safety, anyone accused of these offense can expect harsh punishment. In many cases, there are mandatory terms of imprisonment.
