Violent Crimes in Texas
A violent crime typically involves the actual use of force or a threat of using force upon the victim. In some cases, the object of the crime is the violent act. In other cases, violence is used as a means to an end. Some, but not all, violent crimes are committed with a weapon or firearm. A violence crime can result in no injury to the victim, bodily injury, serious bodily injury or death.
The penalties for violent crimes depend on a host of factors. The most severe penalties apply to cases in which a weapon was used, or the victim was seriously injured.
