Violent Crimes in California 

Generally, violent crimes are offenses that involve a person inflicting, or threatening to cause, bodily harm to another person. For this reason, stealing financial information from a computer and identity theft are not violent crimes, but robbery is classified as a violent crime. 

Some examples of violent crimes in California include: 

  • Assault and battery 
  • Robbery 
  • Weapons charges 
  • Carjacking 
  • Attempted murder 
  • Manslaughter 
  • Murder 
  • Kidnapping 
  • Arson 
  • Sex crimes 

 The penalties for conviction depend on the nature of the crime, but violent crimes carry the most severe legal consequences. When your freedom and future are in jeopardy, you need experienced legal representation from an attorney who has handled more than 10,000 cases, including a large number of violent crimes.
