Ventura Murder Defense Attorney
Facing murder charges with maximum penalties?
Perhaps the most serious of all federal crimes, murder occurs when an individual intentionally kills another person, or fetus. This differs from manslaughter which may be charged instead of murder when a person unintentionally kills another person either by accident, or in a moment of extreme duress.
Murder charges are prosecuted with the absolute highest level of determination, and it is critical to enlist the support of an experienced and dependable lawyer who knows how best to neutralize the arguments of the prosecution and achieve the most favorable results possible.
Murder Sentences in Ventura, CA
In California, the penalties for murder are extremely high. Second-degree offenders face 15 years to life in prison. First degree offenders face sentences of 25 years to life, life without the possibility of parole, and may even be subjected to the death penalty.
