What happens if I am charged with homicide in Wisconsin?

Homicide cases are complex and often involve significant amounts of detailed evidence. This can include everything from eyewitness statements to forensic data. Additionally, a conviction for homicide carries significant penalties. For example, a conviction for first-degree intentional homicide carries a life sentence. With so much on the line, it is vital that you carefully choose an experienced lawyer with experience handling these types of cases. When attorney Michael G. Levine served as a public defender in Florida, he had as many as 100 felony files open at any given time.

  • No Need to Go It Alone, If Charged with Violent Crimes

    When someone in Wisconsin gets arrested in connection with a criminal investigation, he or she may feel frightened and worried about the future. Such feelings are often intensified when the situation involves violent crimes. It’s no secret that there have been innocent people in the past sent to jail for crimes they did not commit; this is why it’s so important to set up a strong support system from the start if an arrest takes place.

  • Self-defense Claims Can Work in Your Favor

    Violent crimes, like murder, happen less often than in the past, but they’re still a problem today. One of the most common defenses for these actions is the self-defense claim. In many situations, those accused of assaulting others are only doing what they can to protect themselves or their loved ones, so a self-defense claim can be worth making.

  • What Are Wisconsin’s Violent Crime Rates?

    Violent crimes, like homicides, are among the worst that you can be accused of committing. Why? They’re seen as immoral, which makes them even more disgraceful in the eyes of the court. Many violent crimes have harsh penalties upon conviction. You might face many years in prison or heavy fines.

  • Alleged Violent Crimes Are Not Constitutions of Guilt

    As in all other states, violent crimes sometimes occur in Wisconsin. In fact, on a recent Monday, a man was arrested and charged with stabbing another man. The supposed crime took place in the wee hours after midnight at an apartment. The 42-year-old victim was listed in serious condition and was transported to a hospital for emergency surgery. When prosecutors suspect violent crimes, such as murder, they are often quite aggressive in their quests to secure convictions.
