Violent Crimes in Massachusetts
Violent crimes are those involving the use of force against others, often through the use of deadly weapons. The public, law enforcement, and the criminal justice system have little tolerance for crimes of force, so these crimes are heavily prosecuted. If you were arrested for such a crime or are being investigated for involvement in one, it is never too early to retain the services of a trusted attorney. Your freedom and future are at stake, so it helps to work with a legal professional who understands the system.
Violent crimes include the following:
- Assault and battery
- Aggravated assault
- Assault and battery using a dangerous weapon
- Assault with intent to murder or kill
- Domestic violence
- Sex crimes
- Armed robbery
- Aggravated burglary
- Home invasion
- Malicious property destruction
- Unlawful possession of firearms or weapons
Most violent crimes are punishable by prison sentences of a year or more, fines, and probation.
Other court-ordered penalties may include:
- Restitution to victims
- Community service
- Mandatory counseling
- Restraining orders
Those with a prior criminal record or those whose crime involved the use of a weapon may be subject to harsher sentences. Furthermore, as a convicted felon, you may find it difficult to find employment or housing or be prevented from educational opportunities or financial aid.
