Pasadena Violent Crime Attorney

By definition, a violent crime may include any criminal offense that is committed against another person and involves threats, violence or injury. Assault, for example, is a violent crime that involves threatening or attempting to injure another person, with the apparent or actual ability to carry the threat out. Battery is a violent crime that involves the actual hitting, striking or touching of another person against their will. Assault and battery are just two types of violent crimes.

Additional offenses that may be classified as violent crimes include:

  • Robbery
  • Domestic violence
  • Arson
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Carjacking
  • Child abuse
  • Criminal threats
  • Forcible rape
  • Gang offenses
  • Kidnapping
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder

Retaining the services of a skilled Pasadena criminal defense lawyer is absolutely crucial in the face of violent crime charges. Due to the nature of these offenses and the fact that they involve a victim who was injured or threatened, the treatment by law enforcement and handling of a verdict by a judge and jury may be increasingly harsh.

Penalties for Pasadena Violent Crime Convictions

The penalties that may be imposed upon a conviction for a violent crime in Pasadena, California make these offenses all the more serious. Although the specific penalties will vary depending on the nature of the offense, a defendant may face imprisonment in state prison for years or possibly for life.

California's three strikes law, which applies to serious and violent felony offenses, means that a person convicted of a felony violent crime will receive a "strike" on his or her record. A second conviction for a serious or violent felony will result in double the penalties. A third conviction, for any type of felony, will result in 25 years to life in prison.
