Defenses to Murder Charges
By its definition under Nevada law, murder is an act of homicide that is
both completely intentional and premeditated; it is different from
manslaughter, which is usually accidental or committed while not in a clear state of
mind. Due to the grimness behind the act of murder, it is difficult to
find a jury that does not have some degree of bias against the accused
the moment they sit down to hear the trial. For this reason and many more,
it is vital that you start working on a reliable defense the second you
are put in cuffs. If you do not, you could be subject to a conviction
that fines you thousands of dollars, sentences you to life in prison without
parole, or even escalates to capital punishment.
Possible defenses our team can use in your case include:
Self-defense: Perhaps the most common and the most viable defense to murder is proclaiming
it was an act of self-defense. Everyone has the right to defend themselves
with force to prevent the undue harm or destruction of themselves, their
property, or those around them. Evidence in your case could be used to
show that you acted violently but out of necessity.
No premeditation: While it is not better than having your charges totally dismissed, a manslaughter
conviction will be lighter than a murder conviction. If it can be proved
that you had no premeditation before the homicide was committed, you could
be seeing reduced sentencing, including the elimination of a possibility
of capital punishment.
Mistaken identity: Many acts of murder play out between only the attacker and the victim.
This leaves police with only speculation or incomplete eyewitness testimonies
to identify the criminal. Were you arrested due to mistaken identity? Let our
violent crimes attorney know and we can build a defense from there.
