According to the California criminal code, violent crime is just about anything that involves violence of some sort. So, if you threatened someone with a weapon, such as a gun or a large knife, that could be considered a violent crime. If you committed armed robbery, even if the gun was a fake, it could be considered a violent crime. Just about every action that causes or could potentially cause severe injury to another person could fall under violent crime.
The following are just some of the potential charges that we stand ready to defend you against:
- Murder / homicide
- Domestic violence
- Assault / aggravated assault
- Sexual assault
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Armed robbery
- Criminal threats
- Firearms / gun charges
- Assault and battery
The answer to this question depends on many factors. What kind of crime are you charged with? Do you have any past convictions? Was there a deadly weapon, such as a loaded gun, involved? In most instances, violent crimes are classified as felonies. This means a stiff sentence is possible if you're convicted.
