DuPage County Murder Defense Lawyer
Aggressive Defense for Murder Charges in DuPage County
Murder is a form of criminal homicide, which is best described as unlawfully taking the life of another human being. This is the most serious crime that a person can commit and may be punishable by death. At the time of this writing, there is a bill that was passed by the General Assembly to repeal the death penalty in Illinois and only needs to be signed by Governor Pat Quinn to become law. Even if the death penalty is repealed, a defendant may face life in prison without the possibility of parole if he or she is convicted of capital murder. It is therefore crucial to retain criminal defense counsel immediately if you or someone you know has been accused of, arrested for or is under investigation for murder.
