In the Heat of the Moment

As you are no doubt already aware, if you are facing charges in Denver for murder, you need the help of an experienced Denver murder defense attorney to help you avoid the very serious consequences that could follow a conviction. Because murder is one of the most serious criminal charges on the books, the penalties are equally serious and severe. Your defense attorney may be able to help you avoid the most serious of these penalties, but it is important that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible and refrain from making any statements to police or other investigators without your Denver murder defense attorney present.

One of the things that your defense attorney will want to know is whether or not the situation that resulted in allegations of murder involved any impassioned anger. The reason your attorney will investigate this aspect of your case is because the state of mind of an accused person is a circumstance that can affect the seriousness of charges faced. Because murder can be downgraded from a Class 2 to a Class 3 felony if death was caused in a sudden heat of passion, it could make a difference in your case and in the sentence you receive if a conviction cannot be avoided.

Whether the charges you are facing in Denver include homicide, manslaughter, or murder, a defense attorney from the Law Office of D.R. Jones will provide you with the sound legal counsel and the assertive representation that you will require in order to get the best possible outcome for your case. Call the Law Office of D.R. Jones to arrange for a consultation without delay.
