Trust Your Case to The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller
A violent crime is a crime where the offender commits violence against the victim or issues threats of violence. With a violent crime charge, the violence can be the main objective as in murder, or it can be a means to an end as in a robbery. A violent crime can be committed with or without a weapon used against the victim. If a weapon was used in order to commit the crime against the victim, then the offense is typically prosecuted as a felony.
