Aggressive Illinois Criminal Defense Team
Although a murder conviction no longer carries a death sentence in Illinois, it is the more serious crime in the state. If you are convicted of intentionally ending a person's life, you could lose many years, if not most of your life, behind bars. You need a stalwart legal defense for accusations of murder; look to our Arlington Heights criminal defense lawyer to find the best solution for your case.
For a first degree murder conviction, the prosecution needs to prove that the defendant intended to kill or cause serious bodily harm, knew that his doings could result in death, or the death happened during a forcible felony. Included in forcible felonies are treason, arson, kidnapping, sexual assault, or any type of robbery. In that case, if a person dies while the defendant was committing a felony, even if the death was accident, the accused could face murder charges.
