There are multiple times of crimes that are punishable under the laws of the U.S. government and the state of Massachusetts. Of all of the crimes, however, violent crimes are the most harshly punished, and carry the largest repercussions when a defendant is convicted. If you have been charged with a violent crime in Boston or Salem, you probably already understand how serious the situation is.
What Are the Penalties for a Violent Crime Conviction?
The penalty for a violent crime conviction will depend on the type of violent crime committed, and the extent of harm suffered by the victim of the violent crime. That being said, many violent crimes carry felony penalties. Felonies are those that are punished by incarceration or/and fines. In the event that an individual is released from prison, their future opportunities may be significantly impaired – a criminal mark on one’s record can make it hard to get a job, to obtain higher education, or to find housing.
Defenses to Violent Crime Charges
There are a few defenses to violent crime charges that can prove your innocence, or result in having the charges against you dropped or sentencing reduced. These include:
- Self-defense. In the event that the violent crime was executed in defense of oneself, it may not have been a criminal act at all.
- Defense of property. In some cases, a person is legally allowed to defend their property (i.e. if the trespasser is using force and bodily harm is imminent).
- Intoxication/impairment. While this is rare, it is possible to argue that a person charged with a crime was unaware of their actions because they were intoxicated or impaired. This argument is stronger if the impairment was involuntary.
