Fight Your Violent Crime Charge by Calling (713) 364-9913

A violent crime is an offense which is violent in nature, involving threats, force or bodily injury to another person. Some examples of violent crimes include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Forcible rape
  • Murder
  • Kidnapping
  • Manslaughter

Any violent offense is serious, but those that are charged as federal crimes are particularly so. When a defendant faces prosecution in federal court, he or she can be sure to face extremely harsh penalties under federal sentencing guidelines.

Not every violent crime may be classified as a federal offense, and typically the offenses that the FBI and other federal agencies become involved with are those involving serial murderers or serial rapists, kidnapping, and organized crime. Hate crimes, terrorist threats and charges and gang violence are other areas in which federal investigators and prosecutors may become involved.
