What is a Violent Crime?

Violent crimes are illegal incidents that cause physical harm to another person—or threaten physical harm to another person. The state of Virginia takes these types of offenses extremely seriously. As your Alexandria defense firm, we can help you respond to the allegations and fight to defend your Constitutional rights.

Types of Violent Offenses

Defendants may be charged with violent crimes for:

  • Assault and battery
  • Kidnapping
  • Child abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Malicious wounding
  • Carjacking
  • Robbery
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Capital murder
  • Hate crimes

When a defendant is charged with a violent crime, preparing a solid defense is essential. At Silis & Associates, we take the time to prepare your case, including filing motions to suppress incriminating evidence, discovering exculpatory evidence, negotiating with prosecutors, and advocating for you in the courtroom.

What are the Penalties for Violent Crimes?

In most situations, violent crimes are charged as felonies and a conviction may result in harsh punishments. Depending on the crime, alleged circumstances, and any prior convictions, a defendant may be sentenced to many years or life in prison. Some violent crimes, such as capital murder, may even result in a death sentence. Your Alexandria criminal lawyer for crimes of violence will work with you to develop the best possible defense strategy for your specific situation and ensure that the charges against you are scrutinized to the fullest extent possible.
