Penalties for Violent Crimes

The penalties for violent crimes vary depending on the specific crime committed. Some violent crimes are misdemeanors but a lot of them are felonies. The penalties usually include imprisonment, fines up to thousands of dollars, and probation.

Legal Defenses for Violent Crimes

False accusations are common for violent crimes. An experienced criminal defense lawyer can find the truth.

Accidents happen sometimes and you shouldn’t be punished for something you didn’t mean to do. Depending on the crime, accidental injury can work as a legal defense as long as the defendant wasn’t criminally negligent.
