Violent Crimes

Being charged with a violent crime can upend your life in many ways. Not only will a felony charge severely limit your chances of employment, as well as your social status, but violent crimes generally carry the most severe penalties.

  • Assault
  • Aggravated assault
  • Sexual battery
  • Battery
  • Aggravated battery
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Carjacking
  • Kidnapping
  • Child abuse
  • Arson
  • Manslaughter
  • Homicide
  • Weapons charges

There are classes, and classes of felonies, to all of these violent offenses that can raise the level of punishment you may be facing. Take burglary, for example. If a defendant was ‘armed’ with a pocket knife, the felony can be bumped from second degree to first degree, punishable by up to 30 years in prison. The age of the victim can also increase the severity of the punishment. Sexual battery of a minor is a more serious offense than sexual battery of an adult.

Nonviolent Major Felonies

There are dozens of state and federal offenses that constitute major felonies without the element of violence. Some are “white collar” crimes, and others are drug offenses. In Florida, all felonies are serious crimes, with the least serious class of felony (a class three felony) carrying a potential prison sentence of up to five years. Second degree felonies carry a maximum sentence of up to 15 years. We represent clients who have been charged with all of the following offenses, and more:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug possession
  • Nonviolent firearm offenses
  • Child pornography
  • Stalking
  • Embezzlement
  • Racketeering
  • Insurance fraud
  • Bribery
  • Prostitution
  • Tax crimes

Whether you are facing a violent or nonviolent felony offense, we can help you by having the charges dismissed, or strongly negotiating a plea deal to reduce your sentence. Our lawyers look for inconsistencies in the prosecution’s case, locate key witnesses, use forensic evidence in your favor, identify chain of evidence errors, draw upon character witnesses, and much more.
