A Strong Defense Against Homicide Charges

Homicide charges encompass more than murder charges, manslaughter and vehicular homicide. Under New York law, murder, manslaughter and other charges associated with killing another person, whether intentional or not, can carry life-altering penalties.

If convicted, the penalties you face are significant, and can include multiple life sentences. However, there are also defenses to homicide charges. For example, some forms of homicide are justified under the law, such as if you acted in self-defense. It is also possible to seek lesser charges, such as reducing a murder charge to manslaughter, which is the unintentional killing of another.

Your best defense is dependent on your individual circumstances. It is integral that you obtain an experienced criminal defense attorney when faced with such significant charges.
