Types of Violent Crimes We Defend

A violent crime is an offense in which the offender uses force or threat against the victim. This can involve offenses where the violent act was the objective, such as aggravated assault or murder, or crimes where violence was used to commit another offense, like robbery.

We offer the defense of all violent crimes, including:

  • Armed robbery: Under MO Rev Stat § 569.020, armed robbery is a crime in which one person forcibly takes the property of another person. This crime involves the use of threats or physical harm to the victim. Armed robbery is a class A felony.
  • Rape: Forcible rape is a crime covered under MO Rev Stat § 566.030 declaring that any person who has sexual intercourse with someone against their will or when they are incapable of giving consent is a felony offense. This crime can be punished with up to five years of imprisonment or up to 15 years if the offender used a weapon or caused a serious physical injury.
  • Kidnapping: Kidnapping is a class A felony and is covered under MO Rev Stat § 565.110. A person can be charged with kidnapping for removing another person from their location without their consent or for confining someone for a long period of time. Kidnapping offenses may also include holding the victim for ransom, using them as a hostage, or facilitating another felony offense.
  • Aggravated assault: The crime of aggravated assault in the first degree is covered under MO Rev Stat § 565.050. This act can be charged as a class A or class B felony, depending on the degree of harm caused to the victim.
  • Murder: First-degree murder is a class A felony offense, covered under MO Rev Stat § 565.020. A person who knowingly or intentionally causes the death of another person can be charged with first-degree murder. This offense can be punished with life imprisonment without the eligibility for probation/parole or the death penalty, except when committed by someone younger than 16.
