Violent crimes are prosecuted as felonies and carry serious penalties. You could lose everything that matters to you: your reputation, your job, not to mention your very freedom, if you are convicted of a violent crime. Prosecutors seek the highest penalties for violent crimes, which can land you in prison for life for a violent felony conviction. At the very least, a conviction could result in large criminal fines and a permanent mark on your criminal record designating you as a violent offender, which can make securing new employment difficult. Also, if you carry any professional licenses, they will likely be revoked, and your career in medicine, teaching, law or other licensed professions will end.
Penalties for violent crimes are particularly harsh when they result in an injured or dead victim – even if the harm caused was unintentional.

Why are the wrong people arrested on violent crimes? In some cases, the wrong person is fingered when law enforcement carelessly rushes to solve a crime, so they can move onto their next case. In other instances, a witness fails to identify the true perpetrator by mistake, and in doing so, they unfairly convince law enforcement, the prosecution, even a judge and jury of your guilt. These are just a couple examples of how the wrong person may be indicted in a crime.
