Strategic Advocacy for Serious Charges

Being accused of a violent crime can have devastating effects on your life. Most violent crimes end up being categorized as different classes of felonies, as opposed to misdemeanors. Those convicted of violent crime felonies not only have to pay massive fines, but are forced to face imprisonment for many years, some for life. In the most severe cases of conviction of murder, defendants may even have to face the death penalty.

Distinguishing Between Violent Crimes & Non-Violent Crimes

When figuring out what counts as violent crimes, one must consider whether any force was involved that caused physical injury to another person. Crimes regarding property damage, such as embezzlement, identity theft, or forgery, can cause great harm to a victim, but not physically. Therefore, although non-violent crimes are still punished, the jail sentence is normally reduced in severity and limited in length.

On the other hand, crimes which lead to another person experiencing physical injury are instantly categorized as violent crimes.

Types of Violent Crimes

Whether or not violence was the ultimate objective, or whether it was just utilized as a method to gain an object of value, the primary quality of this crime is that it was forceful to the point of harming another person. This is particularly the case when crimes involved weapons and tools to accomplish or threaten a victim. However, crimes which did not use weapons can still be lethal or injurious to victims.

The list of violent crimes in Kentucky includes:

  • Murder and homicide

  • Robbery

  • Assault (whether simple or aggravated, or even out of negligence)

  • Involuntary and voluntary manslaughter

  • Rape

  • Kidnapping and abduction

  • Robbery

  • Battery

  • Burglary

  • Domestic violence
