What Are Considered Violent Crimes?

Violent crimes in Fort Lauderdale are very serious and generally involve aggression that causes physical harm or the threat of harm. However, even in cases where no one was actually harmed, the offense could still be considered violent. This would include a case of simple assault where the “victim” wasn’t physically contacted yet maintains that the defendant threatened bodily harm. Intimidation is considered threatening behavior that can result in a violent crime charge.

Other examples of violent crimes include:

  • Aggravated battery
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Armed robbery
  • Arson
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Domestic violence
  • Kidnapping
  • False imprisonment

Are Violent Crimes Considered a Felony in Florida?

Most violent crimes are charged as felonies, with penalties involving years of imprisonment and heavy fines. How you are penalized upon conviction will depend on many factors, such as whether weapons were used, the nature of the crime itself, prior criminal history, and any gang affiliation. Regardless of the accusations you are facing, it is very important to seek legal representation to defend yourself.

Violent crime charges are the most serious offenses you can face as a defendant. Your reputation, your ability to support yourself and your family, and your freedom may all be at stake when facing these charges. The media is full of stories of individuals who were unfairly convicted of violent crimes whose lives were damaged through a lack of proper evidence, false testimony, or a rush towards “justice” to appease the public.

Defensive Strategies for Violent Crime Accusations

Here are a few potential defenses commonly used in violent crime cases in Florida:

  1. Self-defense: To establish self-defense, you would need to demonstrate that you had a reasonable belief of imminent harm and that your use of force was proportional to the threat faced.
  2. Defense of others: Similar to self-defense, you could argue that you were acting in order to protect another individual from harm.
  3. Lack of intent: If the prosecution cannot provide proof that you had the necessary intent to commit the alleged crime, it could be a potential defense.
  4. Alibi: If you can provide evidence that you were elsewhere during the time the alleged crime took place, this defense could be used. This could include witness testimonies, surveillance footage, or other evidence that supports your claim of being at a different location.
  5. Insanity or mental incapacity: You may assert an insanity defense if you can prove that you were mentally incapable of understanding the nature and consequences of your actions at the time of the alleged crime.
  6. Improper police conduct or violation of rights: If the police acquired evidence through an illegal search and seizure or violated your constitutional rights during the investigation or arrest, your attorney can argue that such evidence be excluded, which could weaken the prosecution's case.

These are just a few examples of potential defenses against violent crime charges in the state of Florida. Each case is unique, and the viability of a defense will depend on the specific circumstances involved in the case. It is crucial to consult with a qualified violent crimes attorney from the Law Offices of Jaime A. Aird, P.A., who can provide legal advice and build a strong defense strategy based on the details surrounding your case.

However, Jamie ensured that my situation was resolved in a timely manner and updated me every single step of the way. A very thoughtful and respectable man, you won't go wrong with him!
