Types of Violent Crimes Specializations 

Murder– An act of homicide when the perpetrator kills a person or fetus with malicious intent. The penalty for murder can either be a life imprisonment or death. Those convicted of murder are often handed the latter sentence. There are three types of murder:

Elder Abuse: Any acts of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse against a person age sixty-five (65) or older is considered elder abuse. Other acts include any type of financial exploitation of an elder.

Kidnapping: Kidnapping is a crime when the perpetrator acts in taking, holding, or detaining of another person by force and moving them to another location against their will. Kidnapping is considered a violent crime. The crime is also considered a “strike” under California’s “Three Strikes Law”. Kidnapping carries serious penalties including a long-term prison sentence.

Hate Crimes: A violent crime that occurs due to a victim’s sexual orientation, race, disability, religion, or gender is constituted as a hate crime. While the issue of equality and freedom are usually debated, hate crimes will likely carry harsh penalties.

Assault: An unlawful attempt to commit a violent injury against a person. Injury to a victim does not necessarily need to occur in order for the act to be considered assault.

Battery: A willful, unlawful attempt to use force or violence against another person.
