Understanding The Charges Against You

In Georgia, there are not multiple degrees of murder when it comes to filing charges. There is only one degree. A murder charge occurs when someone willfully and knowingly takes another life. It is considered premeditated when there was an intention to kill or a blatant disregard for human life. It is also considered premeditated when a person kills someone while they were committing a felony. The minimum sentence for a murder charge is life in prison. Depending on the circumstances, you could also be facing the death penalty.

When it comes to manslaughter, there are two different kinds. Voluntary manslaughter happens in the heat of the moment or when someone can’t control their anger. It carries a prison sentence of up to 20 years. Involuntary manslaughter, on the other hand, carries a maximum sentence of 10 years behind bars. The difference here is that negligence caused the death of another person. Our attorneys listen without judgment. We can provide you with an honest analysis and create a tailored defense strategy. When faced with an obstacle, we will not back down from a challenge.
