Understanding Non-Violent Crimes
Non-violent crimes are typically offenses which cause property damage or loss of some sort but do not hurt the victim. For example, white collar crimes are non-violent offenses because they involve the use of deception or fraud, but not physical harm. These crimes can still carry significant consequences, such as time in jail or prison, large fines, probation, community service, and a permanent criminal record. If a non-violent crime is committed using the threat of harm or the use of a weapon, the charges could be escalated.
A few examples of non-violent offenses are:
- White collar crimes
- Property crimes
- Drug crimes
- Illegal gambling
- Disorderly conduct
- Underage drinking
