About Different Types of Crimes
It is best to have a skilled defense attorney when so much is a stake for a person charged with committing a crime. There are different types of crimes that can be charged as misdemeanor or felony offenses. Property crimes include fraud, theft, robbery, arson, and burglary. Personal offenses that carry specific and harsh penalties can include assault & battery, rape, sexual abuse and kidnapping.
Factors that can influence a judge at sentencing might consist of the existence of prior criminal convictions, involvement of minors, and the use of weapons or deadly force during the commission of a crime. Criminal charges are serious and the penalties can be harsh and can include the following:
- Imprisonment and probation
- Fines and costs
- Court mandated counseling and programs
DUI offenses are common but require an aggressive defense from an experienced attorney.
