Types of Violent Crimes

Violent crime is a broad term used to define many different criminal activities that are committed through violent actions. In Florida, murder and manslaughter are violent crimes that are penalized more severely than any other crime. First-degree murder is the only crime that can result in the death penalty. Other common violent crimes include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Vehicular manslaughter

Penalties for these violent crimes vary depending on the type of crime and the details involved in the case; some of these crimes can result in lifetime sentences. If you are facing a charge for a violent crime, the prosecution will use its virtually unlimited resources to try to convict you.
