Murder is defined in Georgia as “the unlawful killing with malice aforethought.” “Malice aforethought” is the “deliberate intention to take another’s life.”

Georgia is one of the few states that does not classify murder as 1st Degree [cold-blooded killings] and 2nd Degree [reckless disregard for human life]. In Georgia, any killing with malice or a killing without provocation is murder. The severity of the punishment will depend on the seriousness of the surrounding circumstances

Providing criminal defense is something I take very seriously. I know I am holding a person’s future in my hands

 

Murder Charges or Homicide Criminal Defense

In Georgia, murder and manslaughter are serious offenses. If convicted of murder, your life may be at stake. Under state law, convicted murders get a minimum of life in prison and may be sentenced to the death penalty.

When you have been charged with homicide or are under investigation for killing another person, you want aggressive representation from an experienced, knowledgeable and skilled lawyer.

You want an attorney who has handled homicide cases, who won’t back down when the going gets tough, someone who has successfully protected the rights of others in similar circumstances. I have represented several defendants for murder charges since 1983 and have an outstanding record for their criminal defense.

Types of Murder Charges

  • Involuntary Manslaughter is when a person kills someone doing something legal in an illegal way. Most often, this applies when a person is killed by a DUI driver. The driver never intended to kill another person, but their illegal behavior was the cause. Involuntary Manslaughter is the least serious homicide charge in Georgia, but a person facing an Involuntary Manslaughter charge can still face years of jail time.
  • Voluntary Manslaughter is when a person kills another person intentionally, but “in the heat of passion.” This most often applies when a person acted in self-defense, but overreacted to the threat and killed another person. The person acted with the intent to kill, but the self defense was “in the heat of passion” so the court will likely find the person guilty of Voluntary Manslaughter. It is important to note, however, that if the person has had any time to “cool off” before they go perform the killing, it becomes a murder.
  • Felony Murder occurs when a death occurs during the commission of an “inherently dangerous felony.” In other words, if you decides to rob a bank with a gun, the gun goes off accidentally and kills the bank teller, then you will be guilty of felony murder – even if he had no intent to shoot anybody. Georgia is also one of the few states that allow a person to be charged with felony murder when an assault or battery escalates to the point where someone is killed.
