Murder and enhanced charges: Speak up in Louisiana

On Behalf of | Mar 17, 2015 | Firm News, Murder & Other Homicide Crimes |

Protecting your innocence during an investigation is of the utmost importance. Making sure that charges against you are valid and legal is another thing that you need to do. It’s not fair to be accused of a crime as serious as murder or a homicide without all the facts in place.

Being accused of a murder puts you in a difficult position. The accusations alone can make friends and family wary, and you may have trouble at work due to the rumors of the murder case. These reasons alone are enough to show how serious your situation is.

The main thing to remember in the case of a murder charge is that you’re innocent until proven otherwise. This means that the police and authorities need to treat you with the same respect as the alleged victim’s families. The case should not be one-sided, and your side of the story needs to be heard.

Many things can influence your charge. For example, if you’re also accused of raping the victim or of robbery, then this can enhance the charges against you. In that case, you need to defend yourself not only against the murder charge, but the other charges as well.

Our website has more information on what to do if you have been charged with a crime you didn’t commit or didn’t intend to commit. Your defense in the situation is vital, because it gives you time to discuss your side of the story with the court. With the right attitude and good preparation, you can protect yourself and make sure you’re heard.
