Types of Violent Crimes

There are a number of different violent crimes a person can be charged with in Athens, all of which carry the potential for serious penalties and prison time or even expulsion from the University of Georgia.

  • Assault & battery - If you are being charged with assault and battery, the prosecutor is alleging that you used force or threatened to use force against another person. There must be a resulting bodily injury or touching that is offensive.
  • Aggravated assault - You can be charged with aggravated assault if the prosecutor believes you intended to rape, rob or murder another person. You can also be charged with aggravated assault if you were alleged to use a deadly weapon to commit an assault or if you discharged a firearm at the victim.
  • Aggravated battery - You can be charged with aggravated battery if your actions are alleged to have caused serious injuries to the victim, such as disfigurement, broken bones, or any injury that requires extensive medical care. The penalties for aggravated battery are substantial: up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $100,000.
  • Sex Crimes - There are many different sex crimes that people in Athens, GA, are charged with, and some of them are violent crimes. Not all sex crimes are automatically violent crimes, however. In general, there must be a resulting bodily injury, and excessive force must be used. Some of the various violent sex crimes that a person can be charged with include rape, aggravated sodomy, and aggravated sexual battery. If you are charged with any of these crimes or any other sex crime, you need legal help immediately, as you face substantial fines and prison time.
  • Murder - Of course, murder is one of the most serious and violent crimes a person can be accused of committing. There are many different types of murder charges, they all carry a prison term, and all will have serious and permanent consequences on your life and the lives of your loved ones. First-degree murder is the most serious of the possible homicide charges you could face, and to be charged with and convicted of first-degree murder, the prosecutor must be able to prove that you intended the murder and planned (premeditated) the murder.
