Violent Crimes in Florida
A violent crime is characterized as an act of intent, violence towards a individual or property that threatens, inflicts or attempts to inflict physical harm. A violent crime can be ruled as a felony according to Florida criminal law, and if convicted the offending party could face years in state prison. In addition to jail, the defendant faces loss of rights and a permanent criminal record. Such types of crimes are usually tried in broad jurisdiction due to their serious nature.
Generally, getting charged in Florida with assault or battery is a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and meeting the wrong kind of people. When a confrontation breaks out in a bar or public place, police arrive at the scene ready to arrest those involved.
The police don’t realize that their duty should be to serve the people, which begin by carrying out professional investigations. They sometimes just dial it in and do as little as possible while not carrying out any investigation at all. Too often, innocent people who just tried to defend themselves get charged for violent crimes with misdemeanors or felonies.
With years of experience, Attorney John Vernon Moore has defended several of clients throughout Brevard County against many violent criminal charges, including:
