Understanding Murder and Manslaughter Charges

Chicago Criminal Defense Lawyer

When an individual's actions lead to another person's death, they could be charged with a criminal offense. Murder is defined by the law as unlawfully and unjustifiably acting in such a way as to take another's life or inflict severe bodily harm. Manslaughter is the unlawful taking of another's life without premeditation and without implied or expressed malice.

The Impact of Conviction

In this state, those convicted of murder, attempted murder or manslaughter will be subject to extremely harsh penalties including:

  • Long-term or life imprisonment
  • Overwhelmingly large fines
  • Parole and probation after prison
  • Negative impact on legal record that most likely will be permanent and not eligible for expungement. This can make it extremely difficult in the future to be able to take advantage of employment, housing and other options that arise, as anyone can conduct a simple background check and see your arrests, charges and criminal convictions.
