Violent crimes, including assault, battery, kidnapping, arson, robbery, rape, manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter and murder, are among the most serious offenses you can face in the criminal justice system. They are charged as felonies and carry harsh punishments, including jail or prison terms, heavy fines, probation and other court-mandated actions. Violent crimes are generally prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and those convicted face a future with a permanent criminal record, which can adversely impact employment, educational opportunities, housing and more.
