What Constitutes Murder?
Murder is considered to be the premeditated, unlawful killing of another human. With the premeditated capacity added to its definition, it is distinguished from other forms of unlawful homicide such as manslaughter. Listed as one of the most serious crimes that can be committed, the prosecution will seek a lengthy jail sentence and, depending on the act and location of its occurrence, possibly even the death penalty.
Acts that are not considered murder, but a lesser charge, include:
- Unlawful killings without malice (manslaughter)
- Justified or accidental killings (homicide)
- Killing of enemy combatants
- Self-defense of your person
- Self-defense of another
It is our job to prove reasonable doubt in the prosecution’s presentation of the facts of your case. It is our duty to establish the mitigating circumstances that surrounded the crime in order for our clients to be held accountable in a lesser capacity or released from the charges waged against them altogether.
