What are Violent Crimes?

Violent crimes may be charged at the state or federal level and include offenses that often involve weapons as well as aggressive behavior towards human life and property.

These crimes can include:

  • Murder

  • Manslaughter

  • Vehicular manslaughter

  • Robbery

  • Burglary/home invasion

  • Carjacking

  • Kidnapping

  • Aggravated assault

  • Weapon offenses

  • Hate crimes

  • Gang-related crimes

  • Arson

  • Domestic violence

Many of these crimes are charged at the highest felony level in New York which is Class A-I. For example, first-degree murder is a Class A-I felony punishable by 20 to 25 years or life in prison without the possibility of parole. First-degree murder charges also apply in cases of felony murder which occurs when someone is killed during the commission of another crime such as robbery, rape, or arson.

Manslaughter in New York is not referred to as voluntary or involuntary but as first and second degree. First-degree manslaughter which involves the intent to cause someone serious injury is charged as a Class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison with a mandatory minimum of time served at five years. Second-degree manslaughter refers to causing the death of another through recklessness is charged as a Class C felony punishable by three to 15 years in prison and fines of up to $5,000.

Vehicular manslaughter is charged where another is killed in an accident involving a driver who was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. It is charged according to one’s blood alcohol concentration, prior convictions, the number of victims killed and injured, and whether any of the victims were under the age of 15. It carries up to $5,000 in fines and, in the most serious cases, up to 25 years in prison.
