Examples of Homicide in Florida

The word “homicide” is often used interchangeably with murder, and it often encompasses a variety of acts. In Florida, homicide is defined as one person taking another person’s life. The offenses housed under this term are separated by the actions that resulted in someone’s death. When you are accused of homicide, it is important to consult an experienced defense attorney who can provide a thorough defense for all offenses under homicide.

Homicide cases we have successfully handled:

  • DUI manslaughter: A person can be charged with this offense if they drove under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol and caused an accident that resulted in the death of another.
  • Murder: Under Florida law, there are 3 degrees of murder that differ in the manner in which the act was carried out.
  • Manslaughter
  • Vehicular homicide: Florida law defines this offense as the killing of another person when an individual drives a motor vehicle in a reckless manner.

Potential Penalties for a Homicide Conviction

The punishments you could face for being found guilty of a homicide offense depend on the type of act you are accused of committing. In West Palm Beach, a DUI manslaughter conviction could result in up to 15 years in prison and a maximum of $10,000 in fines. First-degree murder carries with it a maximum prison sentence of life without parole or the death penalty.

When a prosecutor seeks to land a conviction for a homicide offense, they must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that you violated the elements of the crime. Our lawyer will help you to understand the severity of the charges and the effects of a conviction on your life.

We will conduct a thorough investigation, speak with witnesses, and review evidence to present the facts of your circumstances and work toward achieving a “not guilty” verdict.

The sentencing of your crime will vary based on a few factors. For more details, contact us.
