Violent Crimes in New York

Dedicated Rockland County Defense Lawyer

In the realm of criminal law, certain offenses are viewed by both law enforcement and society as especially disdainful. These crimes are subsequently prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law. One particular area of crime that falls under this category is that of violence. Violent crimes are extremely serious offenses because they involve the use or threat of force against the person and body of another human being.

Violent crimes are at the forefront of our nation's headlines on a daily basis, whether involving the use of weapons or threatening the dignity of another person. Types of violent crimes include:

  • Abuse of children, elders or disabled persons
  • Gun and weapons violence
  • Domestic violence
  • Rape and sexual assault
  • Terrorism
  • Murder
  • Manslaughter

A threat of force or violence does not have to be fully carried out in order to warrant punishment. The term "assault" often refers to threatening someone with force or violence and is a very serious accusation. Furthermore, violence is often combined with other criminal charges such as robbery or drug offenses and is considered a serious aggravating factor in terms of leveling charges.

Factors that contribute to the penalties for a violent crime conviction include the injuries sustained by the alleged victim, weapons used in executing the offense, the nature of the victim and the defendant's prior criminal history.

The bottom line is that violent crimes are heavily punished and any allegations against you concerning them should be taken very seriously.
