Homlar P.C., I am committed to providing my clients with strong criminal defense representation focused on their unique needs.

What Is A Violent Crime?

A violent crime involves intentionally physically harming or threatening to harm another person. This broad category of criminal offenses covers a wide range of actions, each carrying its own unique set of potential penalties based on the harm’s nature, severity and target. As someone who has prosecuted cases for over a decade, I bring a unique perspective to violent crime defense. Turn to me for strategic insights for countering the prosecution’s tactics.

Common Violent Crimes In Georgia

I am prepared to defend you against a wide array of violent crime accusations, such as:

  • Simple assault: Threatening or attempting to cause injury
  • Aggravated assault: Assault with a deadly weapon or intent to commit a serious crime
  • Simple battery: Intentionally causing harm or provocative/insulting physical contact
  • Aggravated battery: Intentionally causing serious harm
  • Robbery: Forcibly taking property with intimidation or force
  • Domestic violence: Violent offenses against family or partners
  • Rape: Nonconsensual sexual intercourse
  • Sexual battery: Unwanted contact with intimate areas
  • Aggravated sexual battery: Penetration with a foreign object without consent
  • Stalking: Following, surveilling or contacting a person to intimidate or harass them
  • False imprisonment: Detaining a person against their will
  • Kidnapping: Abducting a person and detaining them against their will
  • Homicide: The act of killing another, which is classified as murder, voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter, depending on the circumstances

When you are facing such charges, you deserve a defender committed to you and your best interests. You can rely on me to always go the extra mile for you.

Are Violent Crimes Always Felonies?

Whether a given violent crime is a misdemeanor or felony matters a great deal, as it affects the severity of potential penalties. Felonies carry much stiffer consequences. Many violent crimes are felonies, including robbery, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, kidnapping, false imprisonment, homicide and most sex crimes. However, not all are. Some crimes, such as simple battery, simple assault and first-offense stalking, are misdemeanors. I can provide you with honest assessments of the severity of the misdemeanor or felony charges against you and craft a defense strategy suited to your unique situation.
