An Overview of Violent Crimes
Due to the potentially harmful and excessive nature of many violent crimes cases, law enforcement officers, prosecuting attorneys, and judges take a very strict stance towards those accused of violent crime. No matter what the circumstances of your case may be, it is important to understand the serious consequences of using violent force against another individual. In most cases the use of violence or the serious threat of violence will bump a normally misdemeanor offense into a felony charge. Felony charges bring with them serious monetary fines and very long prison sentences. If you have been accused of committing a violent crime, you should not hesitate to call a criminal defense attorney immediately.
