Minnesota Murder Defense Attorney

Facing murder charges in St. Paul or Minneapolis?

Murder is by far the most serious criminal charge on the law books, and is filed when an individual intentionally kills another person. Although they are both homicide charges, murder differs from manslaughter in that it is believed that the accused committed the murder with unlawful intent, and may even premeditate the crime. The penalties that may be assessed for a murder conviction are very severe, often resulting in life sentences with no hope of parole.

It is critical to seek the professional guidance of an accomplished criminal defense attorney as soon as possible in the face of murder charges in order to begin building the best defense possible.

Defending Murder Allegations

As murder is one of the most serious of violent crimes, and is often high profile, involving media coverage and public interest, it is no surprise that prosecution attorneys vigorously pursue conviction. Although many who are facing murder charges could appear to be guilty, it is important to take notice that there are a great many factors that can play a role in determining whether a defendant will be found guilty or not.

The foundations of the prosecution's case can be shaken when common procedural errors and incorrectly gathered evidence results in inadmissible evidence that, while potentially convincing, must be thrown out of court. Every aspect of your case should be evaluated to find any error, flaw, rights violations, conflicting witness statements or other evidence as early as possible after an arrest for murder.

There are those who are serving time currently who were completely innocent of the charge; being innocent is not enough. You need to take action and fight back with the help of an aggressive defense attorney.
