Hate Crime Charges in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Hate Crime Defense Lawyer

Acts of violence or threats of violence that are made with the intention of injuring and / or intimidating victims because of their race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, or disability are referred to as hate crimes.

Hate crimes can include:

  • Physical assault
  • Assault with a weapon
  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Physical and / or verbal harassment

Persons who are accused of hate crimes could be facing serious penalties upon conviction. Long-term prison sentences, hefty fines, mandatory rehabilitation or education, and probation or parole are just some of the many consequences for a conviction of a hate crime. Additional penalties could include loss of voting rights, loss of the right to own a deadly weapon, and mandatory service to the targeted community.
