Murder / Manslaughter Defense Lawyer

Murder, manslaughter and homicide are among Ohio’s most serious crimes. Aggravated murder. 2903.01, states, “(A) No person shall purposely, and with prior calculation and design, cause the death of another or the unlawful termination of another’s pregnancy.” From there, Ohio has laws that prohibit murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide, negligent homicide, and assault and homicides involving the use a motor vehicle. In most cases, these are felony offenses. Running a stop sign – even by accident – is vehicular homicide. Even though it’s a misdemeanor, a conviction for that charge can still land you in jail. So – as common as texting and driving is – it can lead to fatal consequences and legal trouble for you. The old saying, “Don’t talk to the police,” holds even more true concerning serious charges such as murder and manslaughter. While murder, in violation of Ohio Revised Code § 2903.02, states, “No person shall purposely cause the death of another or the unlawful termination of another’s pregnancy,” murder can also be committed without purpose in the commission of a felony offense of violence – which we call felony murder. Manslaughter can be voluntary or involuntary. Voluntary manslaughter is committing murder after having been provoked by the victim. Involuntary manslaughter is the accidental killing of another while committing either a felony or misdemeanor. Reckless homicide is just what it sounds like – recklessly causing another’s death, while negligent homicide is negligently causing another’s death with a deadly weapon. An advocate such as myself can help guide you through the extremely stress of facing serious charges such as these, or aggravated vehicular homicide or assault. The first thing to do if you find yourself facing charges such as these is to call me – night or day. Discuss the facts only with your lawyer – who cannot repeat what you say. Anyone else you discuss the facts with will invariably repeat your story to others, all of whom could end up being witnesses against you.
