What is a Violent Crime?

A violent crime can involve just about any crime or action that comes with the use or threat of violence on a victim. Some violent crimes are classified as misdemeanors, but most are felony offenses, which are far more serious.

Common Types of Violent Crimes

Examples of violent crimes which our Florida law firm can defend include:

  • Aggravated assault
  • Aggravated battery
  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Battery on law enforcement
  • Child abuse and neglect
  • Domestic violence
  • Hate crimes
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Resisting arrest with violence
  • Robbery
  • Sexual battery

If force or deadly force is used, Florida allows a presumption of innocence under the Stand your Ground Law which can protect individuals who use force to defend themselves or their property.

What are the Penalties for Violent Crimes in Florida?

Because violent crimes involve physical and emotional harm caused to one or more victims, law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, and juries take such crimes very seriously. Even if the harm was unintentional or was due to a one-time “crime of passion,” chances are low that you will be let off the hook entirely for committing a violent act, even if it was your first offense.

The penalties for such acts are generally very severe and may result in long prison sentences and/or county jail time, restrictive probation, costly fines, restraining orders, mandatory community service, and anger management classes. If serious bodily harm or death was caused by your actions, you could go to prison for a very long time, if not for life—the same goes if a weapon was used, especially a firearm.

Though it may sound bleak, you still have options. By working with a competent, experienced, and caring violent crime defense attorney, there is potential to reduce your charges, dismiss your charges or accomplish a departure from the sentencing guidelines.
