Chicago Attempted Murder Defense Lawyer

Charged with attempted murder?

Next to the charge of murder, an equally serious crime is that of attempted murder. Attempted murder is a charge against a person alleging that he acted with deliberation and intent, and with total disregard for human life, in attempting to murder another person. Also, the person accused must have actually taken some substantial action toward committing the murder. Such cases are extremely serious, and if you or a loved one is facing such a charge, it is critical that you contact a Chicago violent crime defense lawyer at once.

Attempted murder is not easy for the prosecution to prove. They must show that there was clear evidence of intent to commit the murder and that an actual step was taken to commit it. Other elements must also be proved in order to successfully convict someone. Whether there was use of a deadly weapon, threats, or premeditation of the crime are all major factors. Depending on the severity of the crime, attempted murder may be charged in the first or second degree.
