Joel Bacher, Criminal Defense Lawyer for Murder, Manslaughter and Vehicular Homicide Charges
Unlawful taking of a life can include any of the following:
- Death by Auto
- Negligent Homicide
- Accidental Death
- Drug Overdosing
- Contract Killing
- Crimes of Passion
The taking of another person’s life can lead to an arrest for murder, and this charge is perhaps the most serious charge on the books. The taking of a human life, especially when premeditated, can draw the harshest punishments in our penal code. There are other crimes in the broader category of murder including homicide, manslaughter, negligent homicide and vehicular homicide among others. Some are willful, some accidental, and to the extent those factors can be established in a court of law will determine the degree of the crime and the extent of the potential punishment. It can literally be a matter of life or death for the accused. If you or someone you know is wanted for or has been arrested for a murder, manslaughter or vehicular homicide, accidental death, a crime of passion or death in a self-defense scenario, consult a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
What to Do if You are Arrested for Murder, Homicide or Manslaughter
Do not talk to the police. Period. Do not try to negotiate with the police. Ever. Exercise your right to remain silent and get a criminal defense lawyer at your first opportunity. The police, when questioning you, despite what your mother may have told you, are not your friends. Although they appear as such, that is how they do their job to get information to hold against you if you do talk. Often times an alleged crime that involves deadly force is bundled with other charges. Do not start plea bargaining reduction of charges without counsel! Be polite, yes, but be firm, and request a call to a criminal defense lawyer at your first opportunity, and continue to remain silent.
Joel Bacher: Criminal Defense Lawyer for Murder and Charges Caused by Deadly Force
If you or someone you know has been arrested for murder or manslaughter, I urge you to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for representation and counsel. The prosecutor’s office will always have the responsibility of proving you committed the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. Not only is this hard to satisfy, but if the presiding judge has any reason to believe you did not commit every element to the crime, the charges against you may be reduced or dismissed. I, Joel Bacher, am here to defend your rights. I have, for forty years, successfully defended numerous charges that involved loss of life by deadly force. My Wayne law office has achieved numerous acquittals, dismissals and downgrading of charges for a wide range of cases to accidental deaths and self-defense outcomes through pleas, if not the presentation of overwhelmingly mitigating evidence. We prepare thoroughly for every case in the event of trial. We believe the way to mitigate if not win a murder charge is to negotiate and litigate from a position of strength.
