What is 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.

Defending Against All Types of Violent Crimes

In California, there are three levels of criminal charges. The least severe is a violent crime infraction. Violent crimes are rarely charged as infractions. It is more common to face a misdemeanor charge or a felony charge for a violent crime. Most violent crimes are charged as felonies, which carry the harshest level of penalties.

Common violent crimes include:

Violent crime charges are incredibly serious. The penalties of a conviction are harsh. Depending on the circumstances of the allegations against you, you could be facing thousands of dollars in fines and a lengthy jail or prison sentence. Additionally, having a felony conviction on your record can negatively affect your ability to find a job, secure housing, and attend college.

Client Reviews Speak Volumes

    "He handled it perfectly and was able to get it cleared up."

    Mr. Vega did an outstanding job handling a background check error. It almost caused me not to get hired with InShape health clubs. He handled it perfectly and was able to get it cleared up and I was able to start working!! If I am ever in need of an attorney again, I will definitely give him a call. Thank you very much, Mr. Vega!!!

    "He has the experience and knowledge of the judicial process."

    Atty. Vega provided professional service regarding my case. He has the experience and knowledge of the judicial process in the Stanislaus County judicial system. He was able to get an enhancements charge and a traffic citation dismissed. I would recommend him to anyone needing attorney representation in the Stanislaus County area.

    "Mr. Vega got some charges dropped and got me deal of one year in Sac County with half time"

    Mr.Vega was a great beacon of hope when I was incarcerated last June of 2014. I was charged with some serious crimes and was facing 10 years in prison but Mr.Vega got some charges dropped and got me deal of one year in Sac County with half time so I served 6 months. His team and he are the best. I will always be thankful.

    "I highly recommend him."

    Gilbert was a great help. Things were looking bad. The DA was trying to give me 3 years and a felony on my record. Thanks to Gilbert I was given a misdemeanor until I finish my diversion classes then its expunged from my record. I highly recommend him.

    "Gilbert Vega is an honest lawyer who is knowledgeable, respectful and gives you his time."

    Gilbert Vega is a great lawyer, he is great a keeping communication and being informative. In our particular case he seemed to know the marijuana laws in California very well. I had a family member incarcerated with 2 strikes. I talked with 1 lawyer before Mr. Vega who he pretty much told me my brother would be facing a 25 to life sentence, no help at all but was very eager to take my money. Desperate, we found Mr. Vega and after talking with him, hired and paid him. We trusted he would help us take the sentence down and the rate he gave me was a lot more affordable than the previous lawyer. His rate was a flat fee which included travel time and his services through the whole process. We appreciate him for all he did and he was willing to give me a refund after hearing my brother had been released. Gilbert Vega is an honest lawyer who is knowledgeable, respectful and gives you his time, same with his staff. I recommend this lawyer to anyone. I will definitely hire him again should it be necessary.
