If a crime involved actual physical harm, an actual threat of physical harm, a reasonable probability that the crime could have resulted in unintentional physical harm or, reasonable probability that the crime could have resulted in the threat of physical harm, it will be charged as a violent crime. A conviction will result in severe penalties. A Miami criminal defense lawyer should be consulted immediately in order to determine how to best defend you case.
