Defining Violent Crimes
Violent crimes occur when the offender uses or threatens to use violent force upon the victim. A violent crime may have the violent act as the objective; for example, murder, but the violence itself can also be a means to an end as in a robbery or home invasion.
Violent crimes may involve a physical altercation or verbal threats, or a sexual assault (rape), but they can also be committed with any type of weapon that can cause serious bodily injury or death.
Examples of common violent crimes include:
- Aggravated Assault
- Domestic Violence
- Hate Crimes
- Sexual Assault
- Aggravated Sexual Assault
Of all violent crimes, criminal homicides are the most serious by nature, which are crimes that result in the death of another human being. For example, under Section 19.02. of the Texas Penal Code, murder is the intentional killing of another individual, which is a felony in the first degree, punishable by 5 to 99 years in prison.
On the other hand, under Section 19.04, a person commits manslaughter when he or she recklessly causes the death of another individual. Manslaughter is a felony of the second degree in Texas, punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison.
