Are you facing murder charges?

Facing murder charges can be the single most devastating event in anyone's life. A murder trial and its consequences can affect both you and your loved ones for the remainder of your lives. If you had to undergo a complex surgery procedure you would want the best surgeon you could possibly get. In the same way if you face what some consider the most serious charge there can be, you want experienced and competent attorneys who will fight for your rights and secure the best possible outcome in your case.

An Ocala criminal defense attorney from our firm who knows the laws and who can prepare and carry out effective legal strategies may be able to successfully defend any murder charges you now face.

An essential elements of any murder charge is that a human being was killed by another individual with what is known as "malice aforethought." The term "malice aforethought" has been changed down through the years, but one of its most basic definitions is "one person developed a plan—and had the intention—to kill another human being prior to carrying out the act.

Murder trials can become very complex as the prosecution attempts to prove the many elements of the law that deal with murder. At Kinsell Law Firm we are trained to know what the laws governing murder factually state and what the prosecution has to prove in order to show murder. Often times the evidence against you can be insufficient, circumstantial or gathered in an improper manner. It is vital that from the moment you are charged you have someone who is on your side, fighting for your rights.

Murder Charge Penalties

If you or a loved one has been charged with murder the penalties that are faced can be severe in the extreme. Florida is one of the states that have the death penalty as a possible consequence of a murder conviction. If you or a loved one is convicted of murder aside from fines and other penalties you may face a life sentence in prison with or without the possibility of parole. The circumstances surrounding your murder charge, any prior criminal convictions and even the general view the community has towards murder can all have an effect on how severe the punishment may be.

There are winning defenses that can be used in murder cases and it is not uncommon that the person being charged with murder is simply innocent. The evidence against you may be insufficient and the murder charge cannot really be proven in a court of law.

You may have been defending yourself or may have been in a frame of mind that caused the murder to occur. Depending on what occurred in your specific case, it may be that the murder charges can be reduced to lesser charges which entail lesser penalties. In our firm we feel it is important that you not give up hope or feel that the charges against you cannot in anyway be handled.

Contact a Ocala murder defense lawyer if you or a loved one face murder charges and need aggressive, competent legal counsel who fights for your rights.

"A major part of being a successful defense attorney

is knowing how to recognize the weaknesses in the State's case against your client. As a former prosecutor, I ask myself, 'Could I convict this person, and would I do it?' If you know how to successfully prosecute a case, you can then recognize the area or areas that are vulnerable to an attack."
