Tampa Violent Crime Attorney
Any criminal offense that has been committed either with the use of violence or with the threat of violence is considered a “violent crime.” In most cases, violence is just a means to an end during the commission of the crime; for example, using violence to steal money during armed robbery.
In the state of Florida, such criminal charges are taken extremely seriously and often carry some of the severest penalties. Sometimes, these crimes are prosecuted when the defendant did not hurt another individual but made the individual feel reasonably that their safety was in danger. Even the threat of violence, especially with a deadly weapon such as knife or gun, can constitute assault.
