Alabama Violent Crimes Penalties

Violent crimes are among the most serious of all offenses and carry the most severe penalties. These offenses involve assaults on human life or property that can result in physical injury or death. The most serious are charged as Class A felonies that are punishable by decades or life in prison or even the death penalty. Lower-level misdemeanor assaults can put you in jail for up to 1 year. Furthermore, you will be stuck with a criminal record that can damage your reputation, make it difficult to find work or housing, and leave you with a social stigma that is difficult to overcome.

Murder, a homicide offense, involves the intentional killing of another or causing death through gross negligence. It results in a Class A felony charge. Allegedly taking the life of another person is the gravest of all crimes which demands thorough preparation and an aggressive strategy in court from an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

Manslaughter is a less serious offense, generally charged as a Class B felony. It is defined as causing the death of another recklessly or in the heat of passion that has been provoked. It is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $20,000.

Rape by force, rape of a child younger than 12, or rape of someone who is mentally incompetent or physically helpless are also Class A felonies carrying the stiffest penalties of all.
