Common Types of Violent Crimes

Many people are under the misconception that violent crimes only involve an act that has caused physical harm against another. While the most serious violent crimes may involve physical violence, others may involve the threat of violence, such as in the case of a robbery. No matter the circumstances, we are here to help fight the charges against you.

We defend clients against all violent crimes, including charges of:

  • Sexual battery (794.011 of Florida Statutes)
  • Robbery
  • Murder (782.04 of Florida Statutes)
  • Manslaughter (782.07 of Florida Statutes)
  • Assault (784.011 of Florida Statutes)
  • Battery/felony battery (784.03 of Florida Statutes)
  • Domestic violence

Fighting the Penalties for Violent Crime in Florida

Every violent crime carries different potential penalties depending on your having a prior criminal record, the age of the victim, and the extent of alleged violence. For example, a robbery offense would become much more serious if there was a weapon involved or if someone was shot in the commission of the crime. The variation of penalties can be confusing, which is why it's essential to have a proper legal defense from Maj Vasigh.

Depending on the circumstances, you could face:

  • Up to 60 days in jail and up to $500 in fines for a second-degree misdemeanor
  • Up to a year in jail and up to $1,000 in fines for a first-degree misdemeanor
  • Up to 5 years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines for a third-degree felony
  • Up to 15 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines for a second-degree felony
  • Up to 30 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines for a first-degree felony.
