Types Of Violent Crimes And Their Penalties
Some of the types of violent crime cases we take on in Maryland include:
- First-degree assault
- Second-degree assault
- Attempted murder
- Felony murder
- Domestic violence
- Sexual assault
- Gang crimes
These alleged acts of violence are often linked to drug crime charges, which can result in additional charges and penalties.
In any case, if convicted of a violent crime you could face 10 to 20 years in prison for a first offense, and if you are charged with a second or subsequent offense, you could be looking at a much longer sentence with mandatory minimums for repeat offenders. The severity of penalties will vary depending on the nature of the offense, its classification, and the mandatory minimum penalties associated with a conviction under Maryland law.
