In California violent crimes can be very serious crimes. The penalties for committing such crimes can have lasting consequences. The severity of the punishment is dependent on the type of crime committed and under what circumstances. For instance, in California, determining whether you face a misdemeanor or a felony for a battery charge or an assault charge could depend on the age of the victim, the severity of the injury or the use of a weapon.

Violent crimes can have harsh penalties. Depending on the crime and the circumstance, penalties for these crimes can range from a year of incarceration up to life in prison.

Yet, violent crimes can be challenged in many ways. The most common defense for a violent crime is self-defense or the defense of others, but the force you use for the defense has to be reasonable. For example, if you kill someone for coming towards you with a pencil or a stick, the judge would not see that as reasonable.
