What are Violent Crimes in Florida?

Violent crimes consist of actions or threat of actions meant to physically injure others. Even if the threat is not carried out, the act of causing someone to fear injury or death constitutes a crime of violence. These crimes can be committed strictly for the purpose of bodily harm or can occur as a happenstance when committing another offense, such as robbery.

Violent crimes cover a wide range of offenses, including:

  • Simple assault
  • Aggravated assault
  • Battery
  • Sexual assault
  • Rape
  • Robbery
  • Domestic violence
  • Kidnapping
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder

Depending on the circumstances, a conviction of any violent crime can result in an extended period of years up to life in prison. Many factors will determine the harshness of the punishment, such as premeditation, intent, self-defense, and more.

One of the most common violent crimes is assault. Assault involves using force or the threat of force against another either with or without actual contact. It may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. For example, assaulting someone by threatening the person with a weapon would be considered aggravated assault.

  • Divorce Case

    “My Fiancé was going through a very rough divorce before we met Mrs. Fisher. He had a Lawyer who didn’t care how his case turns out which wasn’t fear to us. He met with Mrs. Fisher and she took on his case. She made sure her and her staff were on top on everything. They kept us informed about any little changes and made sure we didn’t stress. She didn’t just come to court when it was time to come to court, she was hands on with everything from the beginning to the end. We didn’t know what our outcome would be with the first lawyer, but with Mrs. Fisher, we had confidence that everything would work out for the best. If you’re looking for a great, respectful, outstanding, hands on lawyer, Mrs. Fisher and her staff is your best go.You can stop your worrying and be able to relax while they handle it all. I’m so Grateful for her staff because now my spouse is divorced and we are now planning our wedding. Thank you Mrs. Fisher and your staff! My family and I will be forever Grateful. L. Edwards”
