Overview of Attempted Murder PC 664/187
In California, attempted murder is charged when someone takes a direct step towards the unlawful killing of another. A conviction for attempted murder carries a sentence of 5, 7, or 9 years in state prison. However, if the prosecution alleges that a person attempted to kill another with premeditation and deliberation, then a conviction for attempted murder carries a life sentence. Additionally, special enhancements may apply if the attempted murder was committed in connection with a criminal street gang or the person used a dangerous weapon or firearm.
Defense Against Attempted Murder Charges in Newport Beach
By retaining our office to defend against attempted murder charges, we will explore and investigate all areas of the prosecution’s case to mount a successful defense. Ordinarily, our clients are a prime example of being over-charged by the prosecution when the evidence clearly suggests otherwise. There are several areas of attacking the government’s case that our office routinely conducts. For instance, we will determine if the evidence establishes a intent to kill another; the attempted killing was actually done in self-defense or in the defense of another; our client has an alibi and/or is the product of mistaken identification by cross-racial identification or poor lighting; and determine whether the death of the decedent was an accident. Our Newport Beach attempted murder defense lawyers provide valuable resources to our clients including expert witnesses and seasoned ex police detectives or former federal agents to question witnesses and gather evidence in support of earning a dismissal of the case or acquittal at trial.
