Types of Violent Crimes in Florida

A violent crime involves the use of violence or force, as well as the threat of violence and force. Such crimes often occur where violence is the main purpose of the offense and as a means to an end. For instance, violence is the main purpose when a person fires someone else to commit murder. On the other hand, violence as a means to an end happens if a person robs a bank and ends up shooting a security guard.

Common types of violent crimes our firm can handle include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Aggravated assault and battery
  • Sexual battery
  • Aggravated child abuse
  • Aggravated abuse of an elderly or disabled adult
  • Robbery
  • Home-invasion robbery
  • Carjacking
  • Kidnapping
  • Arson
  • Dangerous weapons enhancements
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder

Being convicted of a violent crime can result in a prison sentence that exceeds what is normally the statutory maximum for a particular offense and require mandatory day-for-day terms of incarceration in state prison. Violent crime convictions can sometimes subject you to certain registration requirements with the sheriff’s office and department of motor vehicles and drastically effect employment, education, housing, and other opportunities in life.
