These types of crimes are oftentimes considered to be very serious offenses and carry significant penalties under California law. The penalties for violent crimes in California will vary depending on the specific offense that was committed, the circumstances surrounding the crime, and the defendant’s criminal history. The scope of violent crimes is broad and can include everything from assault and battery to domestic violence to sex crimes to murder.
