Violent offenses are defined by La. R.S. 14:2B. Generally speaking, violent offenses are considered crimes against a person. An arrest and/or a conviction can have serious consequences on your life. If you are convicted of a violent offense, you may not be eligible for probation, parole, or suspension of sentence. If you are incarcerated, your earned good time rate will be less than those serving non-violent felonies. A person convicted of two violent felonies may not be eligible for any good time, while a person convicted of three violent felonies under certain circumstances may face a life sentence.
If you are charged with a violent offense, you will need a serious and skilled attorney. Give me a call today for a free consultation.
