Placer & Nevada County Violent Crime Attorney
Contact Our Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers
The term “violent crime” covers a lot of different offenses and criminal charges. They range from misdemeanors to felonies, but they all include injury or threat of harm to another person and can result in serious penalties for the accused if a conviction is reached.
Some of the offenses that California considers violent crimes include:
- Resisting arrest
- Criminal Threats
Being convicted of a violent crime has consequences beyond the court’s sentence. Employers may be hesitant to hire you, your relationships can suffer, and you may have trouble getting approval for housing. A violent crime conviction may also impact your ability to maintain professional licenses.
