What are the Penalties for Violent Crimes?

Any of these charges can have dire consequences. Some violent crimes, such as first-degree murder, earn a life sentence in prison. Murder in the second degree and rape earn a term in prison set by the discretion of a judge. Aggravated assault has a minimum sentence of two years.
