In our previous blog post, we discussed how not all homicides are illegal. If you recall, we covered the differences between murder, manslaughter and a justifiable homicide. For the men and women who face charges for a homicide, the penalties they are facing are scary.
We know that facing charges for taking another person's life isn't something that is pleasant. In fact, many people who are facing these types of charges would probably go back and change the outcome of the incident if they were able to. Since that isn't possible, the focus has to be shifted to trying to minimize the penalties you face.
When it comes to charges as serious as these, it is usually best to leave no stone unturned. We have to look at every possible avenue that your defense can take. From plea deals to strategies to use in a trial, we have to work with you to find out what you want to consider.
There isn't any single right answer for all homicide cases. The circumstances of the case have a lot to do with the possible options that we will find. Because your freedom for the rest of your life might be at stake, which could be possible in a murder case, it is important that you carefully consider each option based on how you are affected now and you might be affected in the future. We know this is a difficult time, but it is important that you get started early since you don't need to try to make rushed decisions at the last minute.
