Owings Mills’ Homicide and Murder Defense Lawyer
Homicide is the most serious charge that can be filed against someone; both murder and manslaughter are considered felonies under Maryland State law. If you end up being charged with first-degree murder, the potential consequences could be as serious as life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Without an attorney, you have a small chance of winning the case if your case goes to trial. It’s essential to immediately retain one of our qualified, experienced Maryland homicide lawyers in Owings Mills. For more information about what the Law Office of Kent L. Greenberg can do you for you, contact our office today.
Homicide in Maryland
All different kinds of homicide within the state are covered under five different subtitles under Criminal Code Title 2. These subsections cover many different crimes that are treated as felony homicide charges, including:
- Murder or attempt to murder in the first or second degree
- Homicide by motor vehicle or vessel when impaired by alcohol, drugs, or dangerous substances
The code also takes into account homicides that took place during another felony in certain cases. This means a murder that took place during a robbery or kidnapping could be considered murder in the first degree. While vehicular manslaughter is seen as the least serious offense (as it is done without malice), the penalty can still be as high as 10 years in prison with fines of up to $5,000. First-degree murder is seen as the most serious charge and carries the strictest penalties.
The different levels of homicide charges complicate whatever charge is brought against you. A seasoned and experienced Maryland homicide attorney will explain your charges to you fully and help you acquire a plea bargain with lesser charges if possible.
