What Makes a Crime Violent?

These are crimes in which there is a use of force, the threat of use of force, a weapon, or physical injury resulting from a purposeful act of another.

Jason Mayberry is well versed in this area and has represented clients accused of just about every crime imaginable. Crimes of violence or aggression are included as the following:

Crimes of the like often involve serious physical and emotional injury to a victim. Law Enforcement agencies, Prosecutors, and Judges take violent crimes such as these very seriously. Millions of dollars a year are spent on resources for investigation and prosecuting violent crimes. As you can imagine the penalties for these kinds of acts upon another are very serious and can result in a long prison term, county jail time, a high fine, highly restrictive probation, no contact orders, public service hours and always an anger management class.

When these kinds of allegations involve a firearm, it is more likely there will be a minimum mandatory prison term imposed or a sentence enhancement under 10-20-Life. Even if a weapon was used that wasn’t a firearm a sentence enhancement is likely.
