What are Non-Violent Crimes?
The definition of non-violent crimes is a crime that does not use force or cause injury to another person. The penalties for these types of crimes are generally evaluated by the amount of damage or loss the victim sustained as opposed to the seriousness of injury in violent criminal cases. These crimes usually damage the victim's property, but not the victim himself.
Examples of Non-Violent Crimes
Take a look at the types of non-violent crimes:
- Majority of Property Crimes (such as larceny, theft, embezzlement)
- White Collar Crimes (including fraud & tax crimes)
- Drug Crimes
- Alcohol-Related Crimes
- Various Traffic Offenses (such as speeding)
What are the Penalties for Non-Violent Crimes?
Generally speaking, non-violent crimes are punishable by a fine or short jail sentence. The sentence will depend on the severity of the non-violent crime committed and the surrounding circumstances. If a typically non-violent crime was carried out with a gun or under threat of harm, the non-violent crime is elevated to the status of a violent crime. Both non-violent and violent crimes can carry serious penalties, though violent crimes are generally punished a little more severely, depending on the case.
