What constitutes a violent crime in Florida?
Typically, for a criminal act to be considered a violent crime, serious physical harm must have been dealt to a victim with strong aggression or malicious intent. You could still be charged with a violent crime if no one was actually hurt, however, if it seems as if you were deliberately trying to cause physical harm to someone. Furthermore, extensive property destruction can be considered a violent crime.
