Violent crimes are a multifaceted and complex legal area, with many different possible charges and accusations. There are varying degrees many violent crimes, and the subtle differences between them can have serious ramifications in your case and the legal consequences you may face if you are accused. For example, the legal penalties for first degree murder are significantly higher than those of a second degree murder, and the penalties for manslaughter are lesser than second degree murder.

Nearly every conceivable violent crime has a similar progression of severity; there is a big difference between assault and aggravated assault. It may sound like a lot of legal jargon, but the reality is that depending on the crime you are accused of, you could be looking at anything from a large fine to years in prison. As a result, it is imperative that you take legal action in your defense if you are accused of a violent crime.
