Representing Clients Accused of Violent Crimes in Tustin
In California, crimes involving the use of force against victims are considered violent crimes. Violent crimes can be prosecuted as either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the severity of the offense. While robbery and simple assault might be charged as misdemeanors, numerous crimes such as murder, rape, assault with a deadly weapon, and kidnapping are classified as felonies. A conviction for a violent crime typically results in harsh penalties, including hefty fines and lengthy prison sentences. This type of offense can also count as a strike on your criminal record under California’s 3-strikes sentencing scheme. Under Penal Code Section 667, individuals who are convicted of three violent felonies can be sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
