Defining Violent Crimes

Violent crimes 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.

Other examples of violent crimes include:

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

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.
