New Jersey Lawyer For Murder Defense
As you know, Murder is the most serious criminal charge that a person can face.
When the state of New Jersey alleges that you intentionally took another person’s life, you may spend the rest of your life in prison, depending on the circumstances of the crime and who the victim was.
Under N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, a person is guilty of Murder when they purposely or knowingly cause death or serious bodily injury that results in death.
Murder will also be charged when a person dies during a robbery, sexual assault, kidnapping, or a series of other crimes outlined in the statute.
If you are convicted of Murder, you may be sentenced to 30 years in prison, with no eligibility for parole.
You may also be sentenced to a longer term, with eligibility for parole after 30 years.
If the victim was a police officer or a child under the age of 14, you will face a life sentence.
