Murder California Penal Code (CPC) Section 187

In California, murder is brought under California Penal Code Section 187. Section 187 defines murder as the unlawful and unjustified killing of another person with the intent to kill a person. Murder charges are the worst charge an individual can be charged within the State of California. The intent to kill can be straightforward, such as when the defendant intends to kill and does kill. In other situations, intent can be inferred when the defendant engages in an activity that is so dangerous that he knew it could kill another person. So, if you or a member of your family or friends has been charged with murder in the State of California or Los Angeles, please contact the Los Angeles murder defense attorney at The H Law Group. Our attorneys are experienced and will represent you to the best of their abilities because you deserve the best legal defense possible. If you or a loved one has been arrested, do not make any statements to the police, making even seemingly innocent statements will hurt your case because the prosecution will use them against you. So, before you make any statements speak to our Los Angeles murder attorney, and they will assist you with what to do next.

First Degree Murder

The prosecution can convict an individual of first-degree murder in Los Angeles, California, if it can show that the defendant acted deliberately, premediated, by waiting for the victim, by torturing, or by using a weapon of mass destruction to kill an individual.

The second way the prosecution can convict a person of first-degree murder is under the felony murder rule, which makes all the individuals participating in a crime liable for murder even if only one individual killed a person during the commission of a dangerous crime.

The felony murder rule applies to the following crimes: (1) Burglary, (2) Robbery, (3) Arson, (4) Rape, and (5) kidnapping.

If you or a loved one has been charged with murder, contact a Los Angeles murder lawyer at The H Law Group to represent you and help you through the criminal legal process. Every murder case is unique, so you need to sit down with one of our murder lawyers and explain him to the facts of your case so that he will be able to formulate a defense strategy for your case.

Second Degree Murder

To convict a person of second-degree murder, the prosecution need not show that the killing was intentional. It must only show that the defendant acted so recklessly that he ignored a high risk that his conduct may kill someone. For example, someone who shoots a gun in a crowded room and ends up killing someone may be convicted of second-degree murder because there was a high risk that, even though he did not have the specific intent to kill, he should have known his conduct may result in the death of another person.

Legal Defense For Murder Charges

An experienced criminal defense attorney from The H Law Group can use a variety of different legal defense in your case. That said, the type of defense depends on the unique facts of your case. For example, if the facts of your case support a self-defense argument, your attorney will argue that you should not be convicted of murder because even though you killed an individual, you did so in self-defense.

Also, your attorney may be able to argue that you killed the other person accidentally because you did not have the specific intent to kill the victim. If your attorney does a good job defending you, he may get the charges against you dismissed, or he may be able to negotiate a favorable plea deal on your behalf.

The only way to know what defense works for you is to contact our experienced Los Angeles murder attorneys and explain to them the facts of your case from your perspective.

Another way our murder lawyer may be able to help you is by looking at the process that the police used to stop you and/or collect the evidence against you. If the police made any mistakes, your attorney would bring them up to defend you in court by having illegally obtained evidence thrown out.
