Corpus Christi Murder and Manslaughter Defense Attorney
The Gould Law Firm provides aggressive defense for clients in Corpus Christi
Murder and manslaughter is defined as the unlawful killing of a human being. The difference between murder and manslaughter is that murder is committed with pre-meditation and intention, whereas manslaughter is usually unintentional, accidental or unplanned. When people commit murder or manslaughter, they are committing the most serious violent crime imaginable because they are essentially taking another person's life. This is something that is not only forbidden by law, but is also forbidden according to most peoples' beliefs and ideologies. For this reason, any time a person is accused of murder or manslaughter, he/she not only faces legal persecution, but also persecution from society in general.
In the state of Texas, people that commit murder are truly in for the fight of their lives as Texas is a capital punishment state. This means that if people are convicted of murder, they may be sentenced with the death penalty. And, even in cases where people are not sentenced with the death penalty, they can still be sentenced with life imprisonment. For most people, the thought of having to spend year upon year in prison is more than they can bare.
