Colorado Defense Attorney: Murder And Homicide
When you are facing charges involving the death of another person, the government will use every tool at its disposal to ensure your conviction. You must do the same to ensure your freedom. We defend clients in Denver and Jefferson County charged with murder in the first degree, murder in the second degree or homicide, vehicular homicide, manslaughter and a variety of other homicides. Whether it is the death of a child or a stranger, we know that you feel terrible and that your life is on the line as well. In many instances, kidnapping charges will be added to homicide charges. Prison sentences are extreme for these offenses and you need to use every tool at your disposal to preserve your future.
Murder In The First Degree In Arapahoe County – The Whole Story Must Be Told
Most Murder and Homicide charges in Arapahoe and Douglas County will turn on your intent. That means a jury must learn all the facts of your case, not just those revealed by the government. We employ a network of investigators, counselors and expert witnesses who appear at trial and coordinate a well-thought-out defense for you. We don’t rely on facts as revealed in police reports. We know that the police often manipulate the facts, talk only to witnesses favorable to the government’s point of view and exaggerate charges. We know that you are often under arrest or under a no-contact order and can’t interview witnesses favorable to your case.
“Simply because you’ve been charged, does not mean that you are guilty.”
Death Is Tragic, But That Does Not Mean You Are Responsible
Everyone will feel bad that a death occurred, but not everyone will believe in your innocence for the charges of murder in the first degree or murder in the second degree across Adams County and Elbert County. As full-time criminal defense attorneys, we will be there for you and will formulate a solid defense. On many occasions, the death of another is necessary for the defense of your own life or that of another. We use this defense when appropriate in Homicide cases. Another common defense is to assert that you were negligent, not intentional. While this defense still results in serious consequences, we can remove from your case the most serious charges involving premeditation. In other cases, we can advance the position that you were being irresponsible, but were not trying to take the life of anyone. Each of these defenses greatly alters what a judge and prosecutor can do to punish you and greatly decreases your exposure. In some cases, a well-thought-out plea or trial defense will result in a sentence to community corrections or probation, rather than the department of corrections.
Murder In The Second Degree Lawyer: Use Your Right To Remain Silent
Your silence will preserve all defenses in our arsenal and make a conviction much more difficult for the government when they accuse you of murder in the second degree and murder in the first degree. Therefore, it is in your best interest to not make ANY statements to the police, investigators, witnesses and family members. Don’t even talk about your case with court personnel or fellow inmates. All these people can be called as witnesses against you at trial.
The Alcohol Factor
Your use of alcohol can affect your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. It can also affect your ability to form an intent to commit a crime. Whether you are charged with vehicular homicide after a DUI that involved the death of another or an even more serious homicide, we have experts who will work closely with us in formulating your defense and then testify to your capacity at the time of the incident. We work with accident reconstructionists, chemists, polygraph examiners, psychologists and medical doctors to build your defense. Put these experts to work for you by calling us right now. We are here to help. Contact us.
