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.
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. In any case, prosecutors are intent on gaining violent crime convictions.
What Is Considered a Violent Crime in Georgia?
The state of Georgia considers a wide variety of actions to be violent crimes. This can include assault, battery, kidnapping, murder, sexual offenses, and domestic violence. Other offenses, such as designated felonies with firearms or possession of a firearm or weapons such as a knife during the undertaking of certain crimes, are also categorized as violent. The penalties for any type of violent crime in Georgia can be particularly harsh, and convicted offenders should anticipate facing substantial jail time and fines if they are found guilty.
