What are Federal Violent Felonies?

By Guy L. Womack & Associates  Apr. 22, 2011 2:40p

Violent crimes are those that can cause serious injury to another person. When a person uses a weapon during the commission of a standard felony, it can be elevated to a “violent felony,” this is especially the case if the suspect has committed felonies in the past.

Post 9/11, the FBI has injected thousands of agents into the investigations of state and local partners and other joint task forces. The FBI ensures that their many resources can be tapped into by law enforcement nationwide, upon request. The FBI takes their job very seriously when it comes to combating kidnapping, violence, theft, murder and mayhem, and its cost to communities.

Examples of Federal Violent Felonies

Federal violent felonies are in a class of their own. If you are under investigation for a federal violent felony, you can bet the FBI is involved. The FBI has an extensive database for crime records, which they can access at any time; they can supply evidence experts and behavioral analysts, and whatever else is needed to track down violent criminals so that they can secure a conviction. If you are under investigation for a federal violent crime, you should contact a federal criminal defense attorney immediately to protect your legal rights.

Federal violent felonies include bank robbery, murder, murder for hire, crimes against children, sexual assault, hate crimes, sex crimes, gang-related crime, terrorism, and carjackings resulting in death, the use of weapons of mass destruction and more.
