Violent Crime Penalties

The state of Georgia does not take violent offenses lightly. As such, anyone convicted of a violent crime can face steep fines, jail time, and other serious penalties.

Prison sentences for common violent crimes include:

  • Murder: The death sentence or life in prison
  • Involuntary manslaughter: 1 to 20 years
  • Kidnapping: Up to 20 years
  • Simple assault: Up to 12 months
  • Aggravated assault: 10 to 20 years
  • Aggravated battery: Up to 20 years
  • Armed robbery: Up to 20 years
  • Vehicular homicide: Up to 15 years
  • Forcible rape: 20 years

All misdemeanor offenses allow for up to 12 months in jail and a $1,000 fine to be imposed.

Using a Weapon in the Commission of a Crime

Crimes involving firearms, knives, or other weapons are considered to be violent crimes whether the weapon was used or not. There are heavy fines imposed on these crimes as well, often as high as $100,000, not including restitution to the victims. An alleged victim who feared imminent harm from a perpetrator armed with any weapon – whether that person was harmed or not – will lead to more severe penalties in a conviction.

Hate crimes are also more heavily punished. Having a crime classified in this manner can be a very serious legal problem. Hate crimes are violent crimes committed against another due to gender, sexual orientation, religion, country of origin, or another form of bias. Gang crimes also carry heavier penalties in many cases.
