Types of Violent Crimes

Violent crimes are typically classified as either felonies or misdemeanors, with felonies being the more serious of the two. A conviction for a violent crime can result in a wide range of severe penalties, including steep fines, probation, and lengthy prison sentences.

Some of the most common types of violent crimes include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Aggravated assault
  • Aggravated battery
  • Armed robbery
  • Simple robbery
  • Carjacking
  • Hate crimes
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • And more

How to Defend Against Violent Crime Charges

Violent crime charges are extremely serious and can result in severe criminal penalties. That being said, it is important to remember that being accused of a violent crime does not mean you are guilty. In fact, many people who are charged with violent crimes are innocent. Our team can help you build a strong defense and fight for a favorable outcome on your behalf.

Some common defense strategies for violent crime charges include:

  • Self-defense: If you were only trying to defend yourself, you may have a valid self-defense claim. Our attorneys can review the facts of your case to determine if this defense strategy is applicable.
  • False accusations: Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for people to be falsely accused of violent crimes. Whether the alleged victim is trying to get back at you for something or made a mistake, we can help you fight false accusations.
  • Insanity: In some cases, a person may have a valid insanity claim. If you are found not guilty by reason of insanity, you may be ordered to receive mental health treatment rather than face criminal penalties.
  • Unreliable eyewitness testimony: While eyewitness testimony is often considered to be reliable, this is not always the case. Our team can work to challenge eyewitness testimony and other forms of evidence.
  • Illegal search and seizure: If the evidence against you was obtained illegally, we can file a motion to have it excluded from court.

Our firm understands the complexities of violent crime cases and can help you build a strong defense. We will fight to protect your rights and future.

    "My Lawyer is Sharper than Yours!"
    I am thrilled to be able to leave a rave review of my attorney Lee Coppage. Not only was he sharply dressed and his appearance spoke business but his expertise and manner in which he takes over a courtroom was amazing. I was always satisfied to know that he would definitely get my point across and my voice would be heard through him (loud and clear) every single court appearance. He helped guide me through the worse time of my adult life. I was emotionally flustered and extremely concerned about my children and their wellbeing. Lee was supportive, knowledgeable and extremely patient with me. Several times I had emotional breakdowns and the staff in Mr. Crowe's office was very respectful and tolerated everything. It was a long year for me but I am proud to say that I made the best decision by hiring the office of Wayne Crowe Jr and blessed by having Lee represent me in court during this custody battle. I am extremely satisfied with the service provided to me.

    "Finally some Relief"
    My attorney was Michael King for a Custody issue. I was very pleased with his response time, his honesty. When the defense attorney showed up I knew I made a good decision. Michael was ready to go on the day of court while the other side didn't even recognize the defendant. Michael was personable and relatable.

    I'm not fond of attorneys but this guy is great. He'll answer your question(s) and there's no pressure of signing any contact. He'll tell you what the family court law is and he will fight for the best interest. This attorney is amazing. I will keep his name and telephone number on my iPhone and will recommend him to everyone that I know who would need his services. Don't think twice, this is the man.

    "Lee Coppage is amazing!"
    Lee Coppage is an absolute Lion in court! When I first saw this fresh-faced and young Attorney I had a moment of doubt until I heard him speak in Court and to opposing Attorney. He was fearless, articulate, forceful, and didn't hesitate to make himself heard. After 3 years of court dates, I believe this circus would have continued if not for him. Thank you Lee, you are my hero!!!
