Atlanta Violent Crime Lawyer
Violent Crime Penalties
Due to the extremely serious nature of violent crimes, these types of 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 prison time. As most violent crimes are also felonies, a person can also expect to face the consequences that are attendant to felony convictions, such as loss of the right to own a firearm, loss of certain professional licenses, limited financial and housing opportunities, and difficulty in obtaining gainful employment.

Federal Charges for Violent Crimes
State and federal law enforcement agencies frequently work together to investigate and prosecute individuals suspected of committing violent crimes, especially those that involve hate crimes, crimes against children, gang violence, and kidnapping. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), in particular, consistently offers support to state and local law enforcement organizations in an effort to bring violent offenders to justice. If you are facing violent crime charges and the FBI, or a similar federal law enforcement agency, is involved in investigating the case, it is possible that you will face federal charges. You will need the help of a knowledgeable defense attorney who can work towards a positive resolution in your case.
