What is a Hate Crime?

A hate crime is defined as any criminal act committed against another due to their race, nationality, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or disability. A hate crime can also be committed towards someone's property, such as a house or church. It is one of the most serious felony crimes one can commit, and the penalties for a conviction can be very severe.

Hate crimes typically encompass acts such as physical acts of violence, threats or intimidation, or robbery. They are usually committed by strangers who identify a person as belonging to a particular group that they view in some negative way. The outcomes of a hate crime that can result in charges being brought against the offender include:

  • Any act which results in physical injury
  • Any form of threat of violence which can be carried out
  • Any act which leads to destructive property damage

If you have been arrested for a hate crime, it is imperative you contact a lawyer who can examine the charges against you and provide you with qualified legal help in your case.
