What is a Violent Crime?

A violent crime is one in which a person inflicts, or threatens to inflict, bodily harm on another.  Notably, the victim need not suffer actual harm for you to be charged with a violent crime. In any event, violent crimes in South Carolina are considered felonies, vigorously prosecuted, and harshly penalized. A conviction for a violent offense can result in a prison sentence, fines, and probation.

Many violent crimes are classified as serious crimes that fall under the state’s three-strikes law, which harshly punishes repeat offenders. Ultimately, being a convicted violent felon means that you will lose the right to vote and possess a weapon and may be denied employment and housing opportunities. With so much at stake, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney in your corner, fighting for your rights.

Potential Defenses Against Violent Crimes

The state vigorously prosecutes violent crimes in the name of public safety, which puts you at a distinct disadvantage. It takes a skilled defense attorney to level the playing field and mount an aggressive defense.

By understanding the circumstances leading up to your arrest, carefully weighing the evidence against you, and interviewing any witnesses to the alleged crime, attorney Mo Abusaft will choose the best line of defense.

The strongest defense is an alibi – you were not at the scene of the crime when the alleged act of violence occurred. Depending on the facts, other defenses can be raised, such as:

  • Self-defense
  • Lack of intent
  • Mistaken identity
  • False accusation

Above all, we are committed to helping you find justice and protecting your civil rights. If we discover that the police engaged in misconduct by seizing evidence illegally, failing to read your Miranda Warnings, or harshly interrogating you to get a false confession, we will move to suppress any evidence and have the case dismissed.
