Murder Charges & Sentencing
If you're facing a charge of second degree murder, you're being accused of maliciously killing someone, or of aiming to seriously injure a victim who ended up dying, but without premeditation. If convicted of this, a defendant could face life in prison with no chance for parole until after at least 15 years.
A charge of first degree murder is charging someone with killing another person on purpose, usually having planned it ahead of time. But a charge of first degree murder also applies when someone is killed during the commission of a capital crime, such as when someone is killed during an armed robbery or a victim dies as a result of a sexual assault. Or the murder was one that was committed with cruelty, seeking to inflict severe, conscious pain on the victim. Whatever the details of the first degree or felony murder charge, a conviction could mean life imprisonment without parole.
