Homicide Defense Lawyer in New York
When someone takes the life of another person, intentionally or unintentionally, this may result in a homicide charge. The very first determination made by law enforcement officials will be whether or not negligence and/or intent played a part in the death. Manslaughter may be charged whether or not someone is killed intentionally, when some form of negligence occurred. If a vehicle is involved (as seen in many DUI cases) vehicular manslaughter may be charged. If the killing was intentional but not preplanned (as in crimes of passion or
domestic violence cases) a person may face a voluntary manslaughter charge. If a person is killed accidentally, due to negligence and/or recklessness on the part of the accused, an individual may be charged with involuntary manslaughter.
Aggressive New York Murder Defense Attorney
The most serious crime of homicide that one can commit is murder. Murder is charged when a person intentionally kills another person. The crime of murder often involves malice aforethought and premeditation, up to seconds before the killing takes place, with intent to cause death or serious bodily injury.
