What is a Violent Crime?

What many people do not realize is that you do not have to physically harm another person in order to be charged with a violent crime. Threatening or attempting to use physical force on another are also considered a violent offenses and carry similar penalties. This is where the law becomes more open to interpretation as the prosecution must prove that the defendant’s actions directly resulted in the harm of another and that the victim had reasonable cause to feel threatened by their actions. In certain cases, even willful destruction of property can be classified as a violent crime.

The following are examples of violent criminal offenses in South Carolina:

You can even be charged with a violent crime even if you had no intention of harming the victim. For instance, robbing a convenient store and leading the employees to believe you have a gun even when you don’t would still be considered a violent crime. You could also be given a weapons charge.
