Murder, also known as Homicide, is defined as the "unlawful and intentional killing of a human being by another with malice of aforethought." The maximum penalty for murder can be life imprisonment and, in jurisdictions with Capital Punishment, the death penalty may be imposed!
First Degree Murder requries that there has been premeditation and deliberation. This is the most serious type of murder offense. Some states call for the Death Penalty if certain conditions called "special circumstances" are met, such as the killing of a police officer.
Second Degree Murder or the related crime of Voluntary Manslaughter describes killing without premeditiation. This is sometimes known as a murder in the "heat of passion."
Involuntary Manslaughter, sometimes known as Criminally Negligent Homicide, refers to the unintentional killing of another person as the result of reckless behavior, criminal negligence or the committing of a low level crime such as drunk driving.
Violent crimes are taken very seriously and typically involve prison terms and high bail amounts -- or even no bail amounts. The stakes are higher in violent crimes than in almost any other type of criminal charges.
One of the keys to a successful defense is pre-trial investigation. Effective investigation can uncover prosecution missteps, identify exculpatory evidence and allow the use of tools such as DNA analysis and polygraph tests.
The prosecution has experienced investigators whose job is to build a case against you while providing you the services of an overburdened public defender to save your life.
Defending against violent criminal charges requires thorough pre-trial investigation that can add reasonable doubt to the prosecution's case. We prepare every case for trial . We will not rush to plea your rights away.
A winning defense requires a team of attorneys, not just one working solo. Prosecutors pursue cases they think they can win. This is why it is critical to dig even deeper than the prosecution and inject the reasonable doubt that will let you win in the courtroom if necessary.
At LibertyBell Law Group, we have a team of the best criminal attorneys with experience in court room trials and defending against violent criminal charges.
