Violent crimes on the rise in Dallas

Posted on May 3rd, 2012 No Comments

A report released by the Dallas Police Department shows that the city’s crime rates are changing. While the overall crime rate in the city is decreasing, violent crimes are on the rise.

From the beginning of January through the end of February of this year, violent crimes have increased drastically (by 19%) compared to the same time frame last year.

Rape, robbery, and aggravated assault have all increased. However, on a more positive note, nonviolent crimes have decreased for the eighth year in a row.

Nonviolent crimes are often eligible to be expunged from a person’s record. If you have a nonviolent crime on your record, contact the Dallas expungement attorneys at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter at  214-845-7007.
