Violent Offenses

Although there is no specific definition for the term “violent crime,” these (and sex crimes) are generally the most serious crimes. Other than misdemeanor battery charges, all violent crimes are felonies. Below is a list of violent crimes and their corresponding sentences.

  • Murder
  • Kidnapping
  • Burglary
  • Aggravated Battery Or Aggravated Assault
  • Child Abuse
  • Robbery

Victim Injury

Lastly, most violent crimes involve some level of victim injury. In Florida, a distinction is made at sentencing as to whether this injury was slight, moderate, or severe. This is often something that an attorney can negotiate and greatly impacts the ultimate sentence.

An exceptional attorney. Not usually a big fan of the legal profession, but Alyssa and her staff are the exception. Pleasant to work with, plain-speaking, honest, and hard-working; I came away impressed with her efforts on our behalf, as well as those of her staff. Highly recommended.


The attorneys at the Law Offices of Shorstein and Lee are very knowledgeable and professional. I'd highly recommend them to anyone needing assistance with a criminal or family law matter.
