Helping You In The Legal Process

Violent Crimes

If you’ve ever watched the evening news, then you’re well aware of the violent crimes committed in the area because these are the crimes that are most often reported on. Violent crimes include assault and battery, robbery, sexual battery, rape, manslaughter, and murder.

Assault and Battery: Assault occurs when someone attempts to commit a battery or intentionally causes another to believe they are about to receive a battery. If a dangerous weapon is used, then it is considered aggravated assault. Assault charges also include assault by drive by shooting. Battery occurs when someone intentionally touches, strikes, or causes bodily harm to another person. Battery charges can range from a misdemeanor to a felony depending on the circumstances.

Robbery: Robbery is the taking of anything of value from someone through the use of force or intimidation. Robbery can range from simple robbery to armed robbery.

Sexual battery or rape: Sexual battery involves intentional sexual contact or touching of “private areas” with another without the victim’s consent. Rape involves sexual intercourse without the victim’s lawful consent.

Manslaughter: Manslaughter is often referred to as “heat of passion” homicide meaning the murder is committed following an event that would cause passionate rage depriving an average person of self-control and cool reflection. Manslaughter also covers a homicide committed without any intent to cause death or great bodily harm.

Murder: In Louisiana, a murder charge could be prosecuted as manslaughter, second degree murder, or first degree murder. Manslaughter and murder are very serious crimes that often are only resolved through a trial on the merits. First and second degree murder involve intentionally taking the life of another person. The specific circumstances dictate whether or not the crime is prosecuted as first degree or second degree murder. These are serious crimes that are always prosecuted vigorously. It is important to have a seasoned and experienced trial attorney on your side if you are facing a murder charge.

Violent crimes often involve multiple witnesses and several possible defense strategies. If you are arrested for a violent offense, you need an experienced trial attorney on your side. At the Berg Law Firm, we are experienced in defending violent crimes in jury trials.
