Violent crimes encompass a range of offenses including:

Most violent crimes involve the use of a deadly weapon, and are frequently charged as a felony offense. The penalties for a violent crime can include imprisonment, fines, restitution, mandatory psychological counseling, community service, and sex offender registration if the crime involved sexual misconduct. A guilty verdict in a serious violent crime case can result in life imprisonment and even the death penalty. The degree of injury that occurred and the defendant's prior criminal history will have a strong impact on the severity of the sentencing. In certain violent cases, particularly if a deadly weapon has been found to have been used, parole eligibility for those convicted and sentenced to prison may be seriously impacted.
