Violent Crimes in Minnesota

Because violent crimes are so serious, most of these charges will be classified as felonies. In Minnesota, penalties for any type of homicide (including attempted murder, manslaughter, and vehicular homicide) can be particularly severe. While the penalties for violent crimes do vary depending on the gravity and seriousness of the allegations, there is no doubt that a single violent crime charge can impact the rest of your life. Even if you are only a first-time offender, prosecutors will likely seek the maximum penalties and use all available resources to prove their case.

Types of violent crimes in the state of Minnesota include:

  • 1. Don’t Talk to the Police!

    It’s crucial to know that while you should remain respectful with authorities, you have the right to remain silent. This a right protected by the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which makes it clear individuals are protected from being compelled to be a witness against him / herself in criminal matters.

    It’s important to note that:

    • Talking will not help you avoid an arrest. If law enforcement has probable cause to arrest you, then they will arrest you.
    • By speaking, you risk making a confession or providing information that can be used to indict you, even unknowingly.
    • Even if you feel that information being discussed is “harmless,” it is still in your best interest to invoke your Fifth Amendment right.
  • 2. Ask for a Lawyer!
    As soon as you can you should elect your right to have a defense attorney present. A Minnesota criminal defense lawyer or public defender can ensure the police do not violate your rights and help you avoid saying anything incriminating during questioning. Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so that we can be by your side whenever you need us. Call now!
