Miami Homicide Attorney

Man Arrested for Fatal Shooting


Homicide is still one of the most highly punishable and prevalent crimes in the United States. Every state has a certain amount of homicides each year. It involves the voluntary or involuntary taking of another person’s life by various means. In the state of Florida, a person can still receive the death penalty for a homicide conviction. Recently, a Miami resident was charged with one count of premeditated murder and two counts of aggravated assault. He stands to receive the death penalty or spend his life in prison, because of the nature of the crime. The authorities are charging him with planning to take the victim’s life, which is the gravest offense of them all.Sentencing for HomicideSentencing for homicide depends on a wide variety of factors. The punishment would vary according to the degree of the crime. For instance, a drunk driver who hits an innocent pedestrian may not receive the highest level of punishment, because the homicide was not intentional. A person who assaults another person in a bar fight and accidentally kills that person may also escape the highest level of punishment. Having a reputable, experienced attorney for defense can make a difference between life and death for the perpetrator.

How a Miami Homicide Defense Attorney can help

A Miami criminal defense lawyer is a person who works for an accused party. This person will try his or her best to dismantle the prosecutor’s case and prove innocence. If for some reason the attorney cannot prove the defendant’s innocence, he or she will try to negotiate for a lighter sentence for the client. For the state to decide on a guilty conviction, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that the person committed the crime. They must also prove that the homicide was intentional or malicious to warrant a high penalty.
