Definitions for "Violent crime"
An offence category that, according to the Uniform Crime Report (UCR), includes homicide, sexual assault, robbery, and assault. Because the UCR depends upon reports (to the police) of crimes, the “official statistics” on these offences are apt to inaccurately reflect the actual incidence of such crimes.
Rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, or simple assault.
a biological crime in which the victim has no substantial control over the action(s) taken by the perpetrator, by reason of overpowerment or by dint of being uninformed or in other than a fully awake conscious state
