A reputation for providing responsive legal services

What are the most commonly charged violent crimes?

While the major crime rate in Texas has dropped, violent crimes are still increasing in our state. As a criminal defense attorney I handle a wide variety of different violent crimes cases at the state and federal level. These types of crimes include:

  • Homicide: The act of one person killing another person. There does not have to be any demonstrable intent.
  • Murder: Murder is a type of homicide in which a person intentionally kills another person. There are two degrees of murder: first-degree murder, in which a person has a motive and plans the killing, and second-degree murder, which is an unintentional killing where the perpetrator showed a total disregard for the life of the victim.
  • Manslaughter: This crime occurs when a person unintentionally kills another person due to recklessness or negligence.
  • Battery: Battery is a crime in which one person causes intentional physical harm to another person.
  • Assault: Assault is often confused with battery; however, there does not have to be any actual physical harm. There merely has to be the threat of battery or attempted battery for assault to occur.
  • Domestic violence: Any type of violence that occurs between domestic partners, such as a husband and wife or boyfriend and girlfriend, is considered domestic violence.

Many of these cases converge with investigations for weapons charges. The penalties a person faces depends on a variety of factors, including the severity of the crime. For example, a person charged with first-degree murder faces more serious penalties than a person charged with manslaughter because of factors such as intent and premeditation. There is also the factor of self-defense; if you can prove it, you will avoid the harsh penalties that come with these crimes.
