Murder Defense Lawyer in Long Beach

Defense for Murder Charges

Murder is the unlawful killing of a human being with "malice aforethought." Malice aforethought can be expressed or implied. Penal Code Section 188 states that express malice aforethought is when there is "manifested a deliberate intention unlawfully to take away the life of a fellow creature." It also states that implied malice aforethought is when "no considerable provocation appears, or when the circumstances attending the killing show an abandoned and malignant heart." Sentences for a conviction of 1st degree murder are death, imprisonment in state prison for life without the possibility of parole, or imprisonment in state prison for a term of 25 years to life. Except for certain instances where the sentence could be greater, the sentence for a conviction of 2nd degree murder is imprisonment in state prison for a term of 15 years to life.
