Types Of Violent Crimes

Though many types of offenses fall under the umbrella of "violent crimes," all of them require a highly skilled lawyer on your side. Violent crime law can be complicated so you should seek an attorney who understands these types of cases.

At The Law Offices of Jaclyn M. Shaw, we can aggressively defend you against a variety of charges such as:

  • Assault and battery
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Weapons crimes
  • Sexual assault
  • Domestic violence

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have been charged with any type of violent crime.

What Penalties Could You Face?

The penalties for each type of violent crime are different and will depend on many factors regarding what occurred and how many prior offenses you have. Almost any conviction, though, is going to involve jail time. You could face anything from a year to decades or even life imprisonment in extreme circumstances.

In cases of sexual assault or rape, penalties may include mandatory sex offender registration. This would affect you for the rest of your life, impacting opportunities such as particular jobs.
