Hate crimes are one of the most severely prosecuted and controversial crimes. A hate crime refers to any crime that is carried out against either a group of people or an individual and based solely on either the victims sexual orientation, race, religion or other defining aspect. Almost half of all committed hate crimes are based on race alone.
Most Americans view hate crimes as direct assaults on the values of the country as America is founded on the ideals of freedom and equality for all. Accordingly, those who face charges of hate crime must realize they face severe penalties. Dependant on the severity of the alleged crime, hate crimes can be tried as either misdemeanors or felonies. Such crimes as threatening, injuring another party, desecrating a religious symbol, and defacing property are all examples of hate crimes. If wrongfully accused of committing a hate crime, you mustn’t leave your future to chance. Contacting an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible is of utmost value to your defense.
