Atlanta Violent Crime Lawyer

Violent Crime Penalties

Due to the serious nature of violent crimes, these offenses are pursued vigorously by prosecutors in state and federal courts. A person convicted of a violent crime is likely to face penalties that include fines, restitution to the victim(s), probation, mandatory anger management classes, and imprisonment. As most violent crimes are also felonies, one can also expect serious long-term consequences, such as loss of the right to own a firearm, loss of certain professional licenses, limited financial and housing opportunities, and difficulty obtaining gainful employment.
