What Constitutes Murder?

Not all incidents resulting in death result in murder charges, but prosecutors may accuse you of this violent crime anyway. Your lawyer can help you protect your rights by first ensuring you are being charged with the appropriate offense, then ensuring all evidence against you was collected in a legal, lawful manner.

Your prosecutors must be able to prove that:

  • You knew your actions would result in the death of the victim
  • You intended to carry out this action against this specific person
  • You willfully disregarded human life in doing so

In cases where someone else died because of your actions, it may be possible to prove that the death was accidental, or that it was not premeditated.

Consequences of a Conviction

If you are convicted of murder, you could face years in prison and fines of up to $10,000. The consequences only increase if the victim was a peace officer, an inmate, multiple people, a child, or someone involved with a trial. You need to plan an effective defense if you are to get through these charges with your reputation intact.

You may be able to fight the charges by proving that you did not have criminal intent, such as if you were intoxicated or you were acting in self-defense. Goza & Carreras, Attorneys at Law can help you understand the strategies that work when protecting your future. We offer free consultations to answer your questions and to give you the information you need to move forward.
