Facing A Violent Crime Charge? Put a Former Prosecutor on Your Side

Colorado Springs Violent Crime Attorney

What Qualifies as Violent Crime?

Numerous crimes are considered felonious violent offenses, including:

  • Assault: Committing bodily harm to another person. The severity of the charge depends on degree of intent and actual bodily harm inflicted.
  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon: A more serious degree of assault that involves the use of a deadly weapon either to harm or threaten another person.
  • Domestic violence: An act of violence against someone with whom the defendant has or has had an intimate relationship.
  • Murder: Unlawfully killing another person. First-degree murder is the most serious offense and involves one of the following: the premeditated killing of another person; causing the death of another person while committing certain felonies; causing someone's death by acting in a severely reckless and dangerous manner; and a few other scenarios. Second-degree murder refers to intentionally killing someone without premeditation but rather, in a "heat of passion" or in response to severe provocation.
  • Rape / Sexual Assault: Sexual assault involves knowingly performing sexual penetration or intrusion upon another person without their consent or by coercion. The penalties depend on severity of the situation and type of force used.
  • Robbery: Knowingly stealing valuable property from another person by using force, threats, or intimidation.

Prosecutors will do everything in their power to ensure that you receive the highest possible penalties in cases where charges of violence have been made. If you are convicted, you could face extreme prison time, including life in prison without possibility of parole, steep fines and restitution.
