Our law office deals with a number of legal issues, but murder is an especially challenging facet of defense. Setting aside the extremely harsh stigma that comes with these allegations (and can shatter someone’s life even if they are innocent), people facing murder charges may be unsure of what to do next and how the allegations will impact their future. Unfortunately, many people have been accused of murder even though they were innocent. This is no time to procrastinate or avoid looking into your options, however, as your entire future may be at stake.
Someone may be falsely accused of murder for a number of reasons. For example, they may have an enemy who wanted to frame them for a crime they never committed. Or, someone who may have murdered another person may want to have the blame placed on someone who is innocent. Moreover, some people are just very unlucky, finding themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time, and end up being accused of heinous crimes as a result.
Regardless of the reasons for false murder allegations, these cases need to be handled cautiously. There is a lot at stake and someone in this position may have to spend many years or even the rest of their life locked up. We certainly understand how overwhelming this can be, but it is pivotal to have a solid understanding of your different options. Whether you have been falsely accused of murder or another serious offense, you should stand up for yourself in court.
