Common Violent Crimes in Brevard County
Whether you didn't know what you were doing was illegal, were driven by desperation, or simply made a momentary lapse in judgment, Florida prosecutors will rarely pay attention to your side of the story. Their primary job is to make the public safer, and they will push for the harshest penalties upon conviction, regardless of your personal circumstances.
Violent crimes and penalties can include the following:
- First-degree murder - capital punishment, including death or life without parole
- Battery - punishable as a misdemeanor; up to 1 year in jail
- Aggravated battery - punishable as a felony; up to 15 years in a state penitentiary
- Manslaughter - punishable as a felony; up to 15 years in a state penitentiary
