Violation of Self and Safety

Violent crimes can be organized into four major categories: homicide and manslaughter, sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated assault.

Homicide and Manslaughter

Homicide and manslaughter each have subtypes that account for more specific crimes. When it comes to homicide, there are some general categories: first degree, second degree, and in some states third degree. First degree is the premeditated, planned decision to commit murder. This is the most severe type of murder. Second degree murder is the murder of someone during the commission of an act that the accused knew or should have known could lead to death.

Manslaughter is the unintentional killing of another human being. One of the most common examples of manslaughter is vehicular manslaughter, in which someone unintentionally kills another person while driving a vehicle. However, manslaughter can include any unintentional killing of another person.

Sexual Assault

One of the most violating types of violent crime, sexual assault is the violation of another person’s body through the threat or use of force. Sexual assault can be perpetrated by someone of any gender, race, religion, or nationality and can be devastating to the victim’s psyche.

Robbery

A violent form of theft, robbery is characterized by the use or threat of force to take assets or possessions that belong to someone else. Robbery can include armed robbery, burglary, or any form of theft that prioritizes the use or threat fo violence.

Aggravated Assault

The threat or use of violence against another person is classified as an assault. Most assaults break down into simple and aggravated assault. Simple assault can involve the simple threat of force that makes an individual fear for their safety. Aggravated assault on the other hand, is characterized by enhancing an assault through some greater threat, usually through the use of a weapon. Aggravated assault could include threatening someone with a knife or gun, or it could be as straightforward as hitting someone with a crowbar or baseball bat.

Giving You The Advocacy You Deserve

Violent Crime Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a violent crime?

Violent crime is defined as a criminal offense that involves the use or threat of force. There are a number of crimes that either consist of or include violence. In general, any exercise of force against another person without that person’s consent is a violent crime. 

2. Who can defend me against a violent crime?

As with any criminal charge, individuals charged with a violent crime have a constitutional right to an attorney. If they do not choose a private attorney, individuals will be assigned a public defender. However, public defenders are often overworked and may not be able to give as much time to individual cases. For this reason, people often choose to hire a private criminal defense attorney in order to have an advocate who can focus primarily on their case.

3. What are types of violent crimes?

According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program, there are four classes of offense that make up violent crimes. Those categories are homicide and manslaughter, sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated assault. Though these are the broad categories of violent crime, there are some other crimes that can involve violence.
