When police investigate a murder under N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, everyone in the victim’s life is considered a suspect from the very beginning.
The cops aren’t going to hold back in their effort to build a case, and if you’re a person of interest in an ongoing murder investigation, you should take every precaution to protect yourself.
It’s a best practice to never allow yourself to be interviewed by police without an attorney present, and when you’re risking 30 years or more in prison, that rule should be followed strictly.
The police are not trying to help you out; they are trying to build a murder case.
Exercise extreme caution in your interactions with them, and hire a lawyer to protect your rights.
If you’ve already been charged with murder, you need a forceful and experienced attorney to protect you from the worst outcomes imaginable.
Murder is a first degree crime, with extremely tough sentencing upon conviction.
Courts can sentence you to 30 years with no eligibility for parole, or in cases where a law enforcement officer or a child has been murdered, to life in prison with no eligibility for parole.
It is impossible to overstate the seriousness of the charges you’re facing, or the damage your reputation will suffer even if you’re not convicted.
