Violent Crimes in Virginia
Violent crimes include:
You cannot be convicted unless the state can prove you had the requisite
intent for the specific crime. There are certain levels of intent, depending
on the seriousness of the crime. For example, if you act with malice aforethought
(premeditation) you can be convicted of a higher class of felony if the
injury results in a cut, stab or broken bone. However, if you did not
act with malice aforethought (either provoked or acted in the heat of
passion) this is a step down in the seriousness of the crime.
First-degree murder is if the defendant acted with premeditation or was
in the commission of a felony. Second-degree murder is when the defendant
was not provoked but thought out and devised to kill the harmed individual.
Voluntary manslaughter is killing someone during the heat of passion or
provocation which prevented the defendant from having a rational thought.
Involuntary manslaughter is when the defendant knew or should have known
that death was likely to occur as a result of their actions. We can explain
to you the specific charge you are facing and what the prosecution has
to prove to convict you.
