What are Violent Crimes?
A violent crime is classified as any criminal act involving physical violence, or the threat of violence against a person or group of people. If the crime is committed with the use of a deadly weapon, the accused may face more severe charges and penalties.
Types of violent crimes include, but are not limited to:
- Assault / Battery: Attacking, or threatening to attack a person in a physical or violent way
- Kidnapping: Knowingly taking or confining a person against his or her will, especially using violence or the threat of violence to do so
- Robbery: Using violence or the threat of violence to steal something of value from a person
- Murder: Intentionally killing another person
- Manslaughter: Unintentionally killing another person, sometimes with the use of a vehicle
- Domestic Violence: Using violence against a family member, spouse, or partner
WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR VIOLENT CRIMES?
The penalties for such crimes vary greatly and depend on the circumstances of the crime, what harm was inflicted or threatened, and if the defendant has any previous convictions. Possible punishments include jail and prison time, hefty fines, a criminal record, probation, and community service.
