Violent crimes: Man facing prison for armed robbery, assault

A 37-year-old man has been given a prison sentence after having been found guilty on two separate charges. The Massachusetts resident was accused of two violent crimes: armed robbery and domestic assault. The charges stemmed from incidents in October and November of this year. The man was found guilty of physically assaulting his former girlfriend and of using a knife to rob a store about a month afterwards.

Involuntary manslaughter and other violent crimes carry penalties

Massachusetts defendants are sometimes understandably confused by the charges filed against them. This can be particularly upsetting when the criminal charges are for serious matters, such as violent crimes. Involuntary manslaughter is one such charge that often leaves defendants confused and worried about their future.

Different violent crimes have different consequences

Criminal matters involving death can have severe consequences for those accused. Convictions can mean lengthy prison sentences, fines and a lifelong impact in the form of a criminal record. However, some Massachusetts defendants accused of committing violent crimes -- such as manslaughter or murder -- are unsure of why they have been charged with specific crimes, which can complicate matters when it comes to preparing a defense.
