Fort Bend County Homicide Attorney

Penalties for Homicide

Homicide is a serious charge, and the state of Texas recognizes capital punishment - the death sentence - as valid punishment for convicted offenders. The terms homicide and murder are often used interchangeably, but they are two distinct crimes. Homicide is the illegal taking of another person's life either as a justifiable cause, an excusable cause or by a criminal cause. Murder is the illegal taking of another person's life with criminal aforethought of the killing itself.

Criminal homicide in Texas is defined in four categories. The most severe and highly punishable form of homicide is capital murder, or the murder of a peace officer, police officer, or firefighter. Conviction of this offense can result in the death penalty. Although homicide can sometimes be unintentional, such as manslaughter and negligent homicide, you may still face life in prison for a conviction of these charges. It is important that you act quickly to retain the representation that you deserve following a charge by working with a trusted Fort Bend County homicide defense attorney.
