Crimes of Violence
Generally, violent crimes are criminal offenses that involve the use or attempted use of violence or forceful conduct to commit a crime, whether against a person or in the commission of a felony. Typical violent crimes can range from simple Assault & Battery to Carjacking and Murder.
Due to the violent nature of these crimes, as well as their propensity to be well-publicized by the media, criminal conduct involving violence is prosecuted very aggressively by the various District Attorneys Offices, and sentencing by Judges after conviction is often very harsh.

Defenses, in criminal cases, or defenses that exonerate a person's alleged criminal acts, include Self-Defense; Insanity or Lack of Criminal Responsibility; Accident; Alibi; Identification; and Necessity or Duress.
