Violent Crimes in Massachusetts

Violent crimes are considered to be the most serious of all criminal offenses and carry the harshest penalties. Penalties upon a conviction will be dictated by the nature of the offense, the extent of damage to human life or property, prior criminal history, whether weapons were used, and other specific and relevant circumstances.

Common types of violent crimes include:

  • Assault and battery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon
  • Armed robbery
  • Arson
  • Home invasion
