Classifying Violent Crimes

Under Arizona law, certain felonies are considered to be violent crimes. Manslaughter, for example, can be considered 2nd degree murder in cases where a vehicle was involved. However, any crime can be designated violent in certain circumstances.

A charge can be designated as a violent crime under one of four conditions:

  • Use of a deadly weapon during the act
  • Use of a dangerous instrument during the act
  • The crime caused physical injury to an individual
  • The crime caused the death of an individual

The Arizona Revised Statutes also delineate violent sexual assault as a separate crime, though the term essentially means sexual assault combined with one of the above factors. A third conviction of a violent crime results in a life sentence.
