Types of Violent Crimes
In general, a “violent crime” is defined as any offense that
threatens and/or causes physical harm to another person. Violent crimes
range from using a threatening tone of voice that makes someone fear for
their safety to waving a
gun at someone or physically assaulting them. The severity of the crime depends
on the nature of the offense—whether or not there was physical contact,
whether or not injury was involved, etc. Violent crimes range from misdemeanors
to felonies and are often regarded as some of the most serious offenses.
Examples of violent crimes Include:
What Will Happen If I’m Convicted of a Violent Offense?
Misdemeanor violent crimes, such as assault or disorderly conduct (including
threatening behavior), can result in fines and possible jail time. Felony
offenses, such as aggravated assault, criminal use of a firearm, manslaughter,
and murder, can result in very heavy fines and a state prison sentence—or
even life in prison. If you are facing charges, let a Queens criminal
defense attorney review your case help you determine the next step.
