In Georgia, with the exception of Battery, violent crimes are usually felonies, which carry very lengthy terms of incarceration and generally do not become eligible for parole quickly, if at all. Murder, Manslaughter, Aggravated Battery, Aggravated Assault, Kidnapping, False Imprisonment, Cruelty to Children, Elder Abuse, Armed Robbery, and Home Invasion are all considered to be violent crimes. A conviction for a majority of violent crimes can result in life imprisonment. Because of the seriousness of the crime and the severity of the punishment, a lot of individuals, who are charged with a violent crime, end up in a jury trial.
