Orange County Murder Defense Lawyer

What Constitutes a Murder Charge?

Looking for a lawyer for a murder case in Orange County? Murder is one of the most horrific violent crimes that a person can commit against another person. The most serious type of homicide, murder is committed with the intentional and planned killing of another human being. Since both aspects of intent and premeditation are clear indicators of murder, this can be a challenging charge to defend in court.

Those who have been charged with murder should immediately consult Orange County criminal defense attorney Frances Prizzia in order to begin building a sound defense. Call (888) 925-2727 today!

The penalties for murder in California are very harsh, and an aggressive defense is absolutely necessary, from the moment you are arrested, or discover you are under investigation. If convicted, the individual can face from 15 years to life in state prison depending on specifics such as use of a firearm, whether the crime was gang-related, the victim is an officer of the law and others.

Other penalties include:

  • Restitution
  • Steep fines and fees
  • Loss of rights to own or possess a firearm

California enforces the death penalty, and those involved in capital murder trials risk the possibility of execution by lethal dose of gas or lethal injection as penalty for their crime.
