The minute one is accused of homicide, society is prone to assume the person is guilty


Homicide Defense

The minute one is accused of homicide, society is prone to assume the person is guilty, regardless of the 5th, 6th, and 14th amendments in our constitution which suggest that an individual is actually innocent until confirmed guilty. However, a jury’s view of the case may end up being automatically distorted through the maliciousness of the actual crime. Therefore a powerful defense case is going to be important to showing innocence or securing a lesser charge.

Murder, also known as homicide, comes within four different levels.

1. Murder
2. Capital Murder
3. Manslaughter
4. Negligent Homicide

Those charged with murder face, at a minimum, 5 years of prison time. Life in prison with or without parole is a common sentence with murder and capital murder charges.
