Learn what constitutes a violent crime

A violent crime is one where the primary object is violence. The violence does not have to physically occur — the threat or implication of violence is enough. Violent crimes fall into one of five areas:

  • Murder
  • Forcible rape
  • Robbery
  • Simple assault
  • Aggravated assault

Unlike other states, Georgia only recognizes first degree murder, the deliberate killing of another person. Homicide defense requires the help of a qualified lawyer who has an intimate understanding of the law.
