If you have been arrested, or are being investigated, for  a crime involving violence or the threat of violence your freedom and liberty are at stake.

Crimes involving violence to another person are some of the most aggressively prosecuted crimes in South Florida. This is regardless of whether or not the allegation is something as simple as a bar room scuffle or in a situation where somebody is permanently injured or dies.

A violent crime differs by definition and often the distinctions involve the use of force or threat of force, against another. The penalties for violent crimes range from probation to life in prison.  This is usually based on the use of force involved and the impact to the victim.

Examples of violent crimes include the following :

  • Assault
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Battery
  • Aggravated battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Kidnapping
  • False imprisonment
  • Attempted murder
  • Murder
  • Stalking
  • Robbery
  • Sexual battery
  • Arson
  • Resisting arrest with violence

If any of the allegations against you involve a firearm there is a likelihood of a minimum mandatory prison term under the Florida  10– 20 – life law.  Even if the weapon used was not a firearm a more severe sentence is likely if you are convicted.
