What Is a Violent Crime?
A violent crime is one that uses or threatens to use force against another person. Because these offenses put others at risk of great bodily injury or even death, the State hotly pursues these matters. If you’ve been charged, you can expect the prosecutor to examine all the facts of your circumstances to develop a case against you. Their goal is to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the alleged crime.
At Ahmad & Nolan Defense, our goal is to counter the prosecutor’s assertions and cast doubt on the evidence. To do that, we thoroughly prepare for each case we handle. By collecting and preserving evidence and conducting our own review of the situation, our Milwaukee lawyers can identify holes in the prosecutor’s case or violations of constitutional rights, allowing us to build solid and effective defenses.
The offenses for which our team provides legal representation include:
- Aggravated assault: This crime occurs when a person intentionally engages in conduct that causes great bodily injury to another. That is, harm that puts the alleged victim at risk of death, permanent disfigurement, or permanent loss of the use of a body part or organ. Aggravated assault can be charged as a class E or H felony.
- Robbery: A person commits robbery when they take someone else’s property with the use or threatened use of force against the owner. Generally, the offense is a Class E felony. However, if a dangerous weapon was used during the commission of the crime, the charge elevates to a Class C felony.
- Rape: If a person has non-consensual sex with someone else by use of threat or force, or they cause injury or illness, they could be charged with sexual assault. In Wisconsin, there are three degrees of this offense, and they can be charged as Class G, C, or B felonies.
- Homicide: If a person engages in conduct that results in the death of another, they could be charged with this offense. In Wisconsin, a homicide offense can be either intentional or reckless and charged in the first- or second-degree. These crimes can be Class D, C, B, or A felonies, and the maximum incarceration sentence is life.
