Homicide Defense Strategies
Perhaps the most common defense against charges of murder is to state that the suspect was acting in self-defense. If it can be proven that you were being threatened with death or great bodily injury, or if you were being raped, robbed or similarly menaced, it should be possible to clear your name. Another possibility is that your confession was false or was coerced. It may also be possible to have a murder charge reduced to manslaughter on the basis that the killing was accidental or occurred in the heat of the moment.
We are ready to explore all your options, and you need to seek legal help without delay. Contact a Modesto criminal defense lawyer at our firm now.
