What is a violent crime?

A violent crime is typically a criminal offense that is violent in nature. It may involve the use of a weapon, physical force, threats of injury, or injury itself.

What are some of the penalties I might face if convicted of a violent crime?

Many violent crimes are felony offenses, and this means that they may be punishable by a minimum of 1 year in Florida state prison. Additional penalties may include: probation, heavy fines, victim restitution, community service, anger management, and drug/alcohol rehabilitation.

Specific penalties, as well as the severity of these, will vary greatly depending on the particular offense as well as the defendant's past criminal record and other important issues. An attorney can evaluate your specific charges to determine what penalties you may be at risk of facing.

When should I involve a lawyer?

As soon as you are aware that you are a suspect in a criminal investigation, or immediately after you are arrested, it is important to contact a Miami criminal defense lawyer. You have no time to waste, as you are immediately at risk of facing criminal charges and therefore serious penalties. Even if formal charges have not been filed against you, a lawyer can take action to defend your rights and possibly help you avoid charges in the first place.
