Murder & Other Homicide Crimes Archives

What is capital punishment in Louisiana?

Serious crimes mean serious punishments. For many, murder is considered the most serious and heinous crime, making it an extremely overwhelming and stressful situation for those facing a murder charge. Being accused of murder could significantly alter the life of the defendant, even if he or she is not convicted. Because of this, it is important to understand the consequences that could follow these charges and how best to pursue a criminal defense immediately following allegations.

Misunderstandings between people in Louisiana occur all the time. Sometimes they are minor bumps in the road of life, and people quickly get over them. Other times they are more serious, leading to verbal arguments in which one or both sides feels angry or insulted. And, sometimes, they cumulate in one person accusing the other of causing them physical harm in an argument.

Asserting a strong and solid defense against murder charges

Murder is known as one of the most serious charges an individual could face. A homicide allegation does not only tarnish a person's reputation, but it also places that in a situation where they could face harsh penalties if a conviction results. Therefore, it is imperative that defendants take immediate action to protect their rights and well as their personal reputation.

Understanding the different degrees of murder

Facing a murder charge, no matter which way you look at it, is a serious situation. However, because there are different degrees of murder, it is important to understand what this means in terms of criminal elements and potential consequences. This could also give a defendant a better perspective when it comes to understanding what evidence is used against them, how it was collected and how they could weaken the case against them by having evidence removed.
