Murder or Homicide?

Scene of a CrimeAlthough the terms murder and homicide are often used interchangeably by many people, the two terms actually have different meanings in the legal context. A homicide is characterized by an act that causes the death of an individual, either indirectly or directly. With homicides, the culpable party's actions can be excusable, such as in the case of self-defense. Murder is a form of criminal homicide that involves premeditation and intention to kill. The difference lies in the motive of the culpable party.

Criminal Penalties for Murder Charges

In Ohio, you can be charged with murder or aggravated murder. Cases that involve especially heinous crimes, extreme violence, or an element of premeditation will be charged with aggravated murder. Crimes that are less violent and do not include special circumstances will be charged with murder. However, both of these charges entail harsh penalties that could jeopardize your future.

If convicted of aggravated murder, you could be facing penalties such as:

  • The possibility of life in prison without parole
  • Up to $25, 000 in fines

There is a lot at stake if you are convicted of murder. You may live the rest of your life behind bars. If you are released after serving your sentence, you will also have a criminal record. With a criminal record, you could encounter obstacles every single time you apply for a job, for housing, and for loans. You owe it to yourself to put up the best possible fight by calling an experienced lawyer at Eyer Stone, LTD.
