Aggressive Minnesota Murder Defense Attorney
The time to find a criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights is not after you’ve been officially charged with homicide. It is when you first find out that the police are considering you as a suspect.
Law enforcement is already building its case against you, well before official charges come down the line. Let me protect you, your rights and your reputation during this time.
I am homicide defense attorney Murad Mohammad. I have spent a decade representing clients who have been caught up in the criminal justice system. My experiences have allowed me gain a thorough understanding of how the system works and what it takes to achieve a successful result. Let me put that experience to work in your case.
Homicide Crimes in Minnesota
Homicide, or the killing of another person, is one of the most offensive crimes in the public eye. But not every homicide is created equal. As such, Minnesota law has broken down the general crime of homicide into several sub-crimes:
- Murder: Depending on your state of mind or the circumstances surrounding the homicide, the prosecutor may charge you with murder in the first degree, murder in the second degree or murder in the third degree.
- Manslaughter: Minnesota law breaks manslaughter into two categories: manslaughter in the first degree and manslaughter in the second degree.
- Criminal vehicular homicide: You may face charges for criminal vehicular homicide if you cause the death of another person due to gross negligence or negligent conduct while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You can also be charged with this crime if you caused someone’s death, negligently or otherwise, but left the scene of the accident.
You ARE Innocent Until Proven Guilty
It seems most people forget that simple fact. In the eyes of the law, you are innocent until the prosecution proves otherwise. But you must ensure you act quickly to keep that innocence at the forefront of your case. Juries and the press can quickly get swept up in the sensationalism of a murder case, forgetting that another person’s life is on the line.
Consequences of a Homicide Conviction
While Minnesota does not have the death penalty, a conviction for homicide—especially murder in any degree—can lead to the loss of your life as you know it. You will spend years in jail; you will lose much of your money due to fines. Moreover, you will have trouble maintaining friendships and family ties, getting a good paying job or finding safe, affordable housing.
