Hate Crimes

If You Are Being Charged With a Hate-Crime, Then Here’s Something You Should Know…

Few crimes arouse as much public outcry as hate crimes. If you have been accused of a hate crime, you know that negative publicity in the media and through social networks makes it that much harder to get a fair trial, no matter where you are. To make matters worse, because of the hostility and violence associated with hate crimes, those crimes carry very harsh consequences including loss of your job, loss of future job opportunities, jail time, steep fines and more.

What is a Hate Crime?

A hate crime is different from other violent crimes because it’s not based on how it was committed, but WHY it was committed. Commonly known as a bias-motivated crime, hate crimes involve the victimization of an individual or a group of peoplesolely based on their race, their ethnicity or national origin, color, religion,disability, gender, age, social status or sexual preference.

Hate crimes are committed in many ways and can include physical battery and/or verbal assault, vandalism, cross-burnings, harassment and in the extreme, murder.

Additionally, hate crime laws enhance penalties for criminal offenses that already exist. For example, if two people commit the exact same crime, the one whose motive is based on any of the above-mentioned biases (race, color, age, etc) will face enhanced penalties. Both people in the example above may face assault charges, but one would be subject to a more severe penalty if bias is found to be a factor.

In order to successfully bring hate crime charges, prosecutors must be able to show that the offender acted on bias. It’s not easy for the prosecutor to prove a hate-crime because it’s not always clear what motivates a violent act.

Whether enhanced by hate crime laws or not, criminal charges can come with serious consequences, ranging from steep fines to stiff prison sentences.
