Any criminal arrest is a serious matter. However, violent crimes are the most serious as these are offenses that threaten or cause injury to others or even death. Thus, they are investigated and prosecuted aggressively by law enforcement and prosecutors. They generally result in the harshest penalties, such as lengthy prison terms that can extend to life, large fines, and long probation periods if/when you are released.
Because of the serious nature of these crimes and how deeply they can impact your life, you will need a criminal lawyer you can trust to give you full effort and dedication in mounting an effective defense.

As mentioned above, violent crimes are any actions or omissions that lead to the injury or death of others. These crimes can also include threatening others with imminent harm while having the capability of delivering on one’s threat. Violent crimes can also include the destruction of property, as in arson which can also injure the lives of others.
