Violent Crimes: Murder, Manslaughter, & Assault
The taking of a person’s life, whether intentional or not, is called homicide. Murder is the most severe form of homicide and is punished as such. For a person to commit murder, there would have to be a form of planning and evil intent. In Georgia, there are no different classifications for the degrees of murder. Instead, the punishment for the crime is determined by the seriousness of the circumstances that are surrounding the incident.
To commit felony murder, a person must kill someone else while already committing a dangerous felony. For example, if a person is robbing a bank and kills the teller, that person is guilty of felony murder. The intent does not matter since the negligence from another felony was present. Due to the heinousness of the crime, murder is punishable by up to life imprisonment or the death penalty.
Manslaughter is committed when a person unintentionally kills someone. For example, if a person is in a car accident that kills another person, manslaughter was committed. Depending on the circumstances, manslaughter can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony in the state of Georgia.
Assault and battery can be broken up into two different categories each: simple and aggravated.
Simple Assault - A person is attempting to injure someone or put another person in a dangerous situation. This does not have to involve any actual touching. Words, such as serious threats, can be enough.
Aggravated Assault - A person has the intent to rob, rape, or murder someone and possesses a deadly weapon that can seriously injure someone.
Simple Battery - A person intentionally makes physical contact with someone or causes harm to another person.
Aggravated Battery - A person intentionally and maliciously causes serious bodily harm to another person.
Depending on the severity and circumstances of the situation, these crimes can either be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. The punishments can span from anywhere between a year in jail, fines and restitution, or up to 20 years in state prison.
If you have been arrested and charged with any violent crime, do not hesitate to contact a criminal defense attorney to start building your defense. Mindy Law, LLC offers free, 30-minute consultations.
Sex Crimes: Sexual Battery & Rape
Being accused of any sexual assault crime can have a serious impact on the rest of your life. Even the mere suspicion of guilt can affect your day-to-day life.
Sexual battery can occur when a person intentionally makes physical contact with another person’s intimate parts. “Intimate parts'' is defined as the “genitals, anus, groin, inner thighs, male and female buttocks, and female breasts.” For a person to commit aggravated sexual battery, he or she must use a foreign object, or, an object other than a person’s sexual organs, to assault the other person. Sexual battery can be punished anywhere from one to five years in prison and he or she will be placed on the mandatory sex offender registry.
Rape can occur when a man has the intent to forcibly penetrate the female sex organ with his organ against her will. If an instance of rape happens between two men, it can be charged as aggravated sodomy. If it is among two women, it can be charged as sexual battery.
For the sex crimes listed above, consent is a usable offense. Instances, where consent is not a usable defense, are in cases of statutory rape. If a person is under the age of 16, he or she cannot legally consent to have sexual relations with another person. If a person is 14-16 years old and the accused is either 18 years old or no more than four years older, it can be charged as a misdemeanor. This is called a Romeo and Juliet law.
Rape can be punished by a minimum of 25 years in prison, life without parole, or even the death penalty. For statutory rape, if the accused is under 21, he or she can face 1-20 years in prison. If over 21, the sentence can span from 10-20 years and mandatory sex offender registration. For Romeo and Juliet cases, a person can face up to one year in jail, probation, fines, or more.
