How Are Violent Crimes Charged?

Violent crimes are generally charged based on the severity of the offense, the circumstances surrounding the act, and the defendant’s criminal history. Charges can range from misdemeanors for less severe acts to felonies for more serious crimes. The prosecuting attorney will also consider factors such as the use of weapons, the degree of injury inflicted, and whether the act was premeditated.

Felonies carry prison sentences ranging from months to life with significant fines and potential parole restrictions. Misdemeanors may involve jail time of up to a year, fines, and probation. Convictions of misdemeanors and felonies can result in a criminal record accessible by future employers, landlords, educational institutions, and professional licensing agencies. For non-citizens, a violent crime conviction can lead to deportation.
