Are There Any Viable Murder Defenses?

It is easy for an accused individual to believe they have no hope in the face of murder charges, but this is a common misconception. In fact, there may be many viable murder defenses that can be presented by a skilled Douglas County criminal defense attorney. It's important to remember that in order for a murder charge to result in conviction, the prosecution must prove that the murder was committed by the accused and that it was committed with intent.

This can be very challenging depending on the circumstances, and while many murder trials do result in conviction, this does not mean that a superior attorney could have brought the case to a different result with a better and more effective criminal defense strategy.
