If you have been charged with homicide, you face a lifetime behind bars. Therefore, choosing your criminal defense attorney is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
In Massachusetts, homicide is defined as “the unlawful killing of a human being.” There are different categories of criminal homicide—murder and manslaughter—and different classifications: first-degree murder, second-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, and involuntary manslaughter. Each classification carries different possible penalties. A first-degree murder charge is punished with life without parole; a second-degree charge also typically carries a life sentence; both voluntary and involuntary manslaughter convictions can result in incarceration in a state prison for up to 20 years.
