What is a Non-Violent felony?
Non-violent felonies are felonies that do not result in physical injury to another individual. Many non-violent crimes involve property damage, including larceny and/or theft. The seriousness of this type of felony is determined by economic or financial losses of the victim. Many non-violent felonies are considered to be victimless crimes. This does not mean there is not an individual who suffers a loss, it is simply a classification. Certain victimless offenses are criminalized for moral and societal purposes.
Non-violent felonies can include:
- White collar crime, including fraud, tax crimes, bribery and/or counterfeiting;
- Property crime including embezzlement, theft, receipt of stolen goods;
- Drug and alcohol crimes including public intoxication, drug manufacturing and/or drug distribution.
What Are Non-Violent Crimes?
Non-violent crimes can be characterized as:
- Not resulting in the physical harm of another person
- Not attempting to harm another person
- Not threatening violence upon another person
Violent crimes, on the other hand, are crimes that could threaten harm, attempt harm, or result in harming another individual.
What Are Examples of Non-Violent Crimes?

- Petty theft
- Drug possession
- Prescription drug crimes
