Homicide Defense Lawyer Philadelphia
Murder is the most serious crime on the books in Pennsylvania. It is defined as the taking of another human life. When you are accused of murder, the entire weight of the government is pitted against you, due to the seriousness of the crime. The problem with this is that the person accused will feel like there is no way out, other than to plead guilty. Prosecutors and police can, and will, do whatever they can to arrest and convict you if they believe you committed the crime.
Most people are assigned a public defender and subsequently plead guilty. You do not have to do that. You have the right to be defended by an experienced homicide attorney, to have your case investigated by a private detective, and, if necessary, to take your case to trial.
Many times, prosecutors will over-charge a person, meaning they will charge murder when the events only actually warrant a lesser charge. Even worse, prosecutors and police might have the wrong person. Having good representation can mean the difference between spending the next 20 years in jail and doing far less time, or even walking away from the charges completely.
