What is Considered a Violent Crime in California?

In California, a crime is categorized as violent if it involves force or the threat of force against another individual, according to the California Penal Code Section 667.5(c). It's important to note that the classification of a crime can change based on the details of the incident. For specific legal advice or information, it's always best to consult with a legal professional.
