If you have been accused of a violent crime, you can be facing severe consequences that will haunt you for the rest of your life. A conviction for a violent crime can result in a harsh prison sentence and expensive fines that can cost you thousands of dollars. Having a permanent mark on your criminal record can make it very difficult for you to find gainful employment and build your credit for important financial opportunities. For these reasons and more, it is important to secure experienced legal counsel to ensure your rights are protected.
What Is Considered a Violent Crime?
Violent crimes are offenses in which the perpetrator uses force or threatens to use force on a victim. Some of the most common violent crimes include:
- Domestic Violence
- Gang Violence
- Armed Robbery
Penalties for Violent Crime
While studies show that violent crime is down in many communities across North Carolina, these offenses are still taken very seriously by both policy makers and law enforcement officers. The severity of the penalties for a violent crime will depend on how serious the charges are against you. The nature of the crime and the extent of the other party’s injuries will determine which charges are pursued by prosecutors.
If you are convicted of a violent crime in North Carolina, you could face life-altering penalties. Most of these offenses are felonies, which means that you will be required to spend time in a state prison if convicted. Less serious crimes like simple battery can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor, which will result in less time in jail and fewer criminal fines. You will also have a criminal record, which will follow you for the rest of your life.
