Violent crimes involve criminal activity in which the alleged offender either threatened to use violence or uses violence upon the alleged victim. This encompasses crimes such as murder, as well as crimes of violence as a means to an end such as robbery. Violent crimes generally carry the potential for longer jail sentences.
It is important to lay out a detailed defense strategy should you be charged with a violent crime. The district attorneys who prosecute violent crimes look into various types of evidence including motive, intent, whether you have been convicted of crimes in the past, the testimony of witnesses and results of crime scene analysis.
