Protecting Your Rights and Freedoms Let Gerash Steiner Fight Your Violent Crime Charges

Denver Violent Crimes Defense Lawyers

Violent crimes, crimes that involve intentionally causing harm to another person, can carry much harsher penalties than other crimes. Conviction for a violent crime can have serious repercussions, not just with regard to possible jail time, but to all areas of your life, including employment and reputation.

A fight against a criminal charge for a violent crime is likely going to be a fight for your freedom. Do not go into this battle unprepared. Contact the Denver violent crimes defense attorneys at Gerash Steiner, P.C., today to schedule a free consultation regarding your case.

What is a violent crime?

A violent crime requires: 1) an intent to cause harm to someone else, and 2) the actual commission of that harm. In order to be convicted of a violent crime, prosecutors will have the burden of proving that you have committed a violent crime based on these two requirements.

Some common examples of violent crimes include:

  • Armed robbery, aggravated assault, and battery
  • Bank robbery
  • Murder, homicide, and manslaughter
  • Carjacking
  • Domestic abuse, assault, violence
  • Weapons charges
  • Kidnapping and stalking
  • Sexual assault

Consequences of Violent Crime Convictions

While some of the crimes that meet the definition of a violent crime are misdemeanors, with a maximum sentence of two years in prison and a $1,000 fine, most are felonies. Felony violent crimes have serious consequences, including jail time that can run from one year to a life sentence without parole.

Felony convictions can also result in the following:

  • Loss of the right to vote
  • Loss of the right to possess firearms
  • Inability to run for public office
  • Difficulty in obtaining professional licenses and employment
