- Armed Robbery – These charges involve accusations of committing a robbery with the use or threatened use of a weapon to inflict bodily injury. The charges may be either state or federal, depending on the circumstances. The potential consequences of a conviction are severe, including significant prison time, heavy fines and electronic monitoring.
- Assault & Battery – These are actually two separate charges that involve physical harm or threatened physical harm to someone else. Even if no one was hurt, prosecutors may pursue assault and battery charges. A conviction could mean time in prison, anger management classes, probation and a restraining order.
- Kidnapping – This crime involves taking someone by coercion or force. Although it often involves holding someone for ransom, the charges may also arise in a child custody situation. First-degree kidnapping carries penalties of up to 30 years in prison if the alleged victim is 16 or older. If the victim is under 16 or there are other aggravating circumstances, a conviction may result in a life sentence without parole.
- Murder and Homicide – Contrary to common belief, murder and homicide actually describe different charges. Murder always involves intent to kill someone, while homicide can be accidental. Courts take both categories very seriously. The rest of your life could be on the line if you face these kinds of charges. Conviction could mean life in prison without parole.
