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.

  • Working with her was a real blessing for us.

    “This law office is amazing! Ms. Fisher was so caring regarding my son's child support case. She guided us through the process and has given him a new lease on life since he no longer has an enormous amount of back support to pay. The staff was courteous and helpful every step of the way. Even in court when the judge was being rude, she maintained her professional demeanor and "stuck to her guns". Working with her was a real blessing for us.”
