Murder charges come in different degrees depending on the level of premeditation involved in the crime.
It is very important to know that murder convictions in the state of Missouri carry the threat of capital punishment as a penalty. Other penalties may be less severe, but still include significant prison time.
The difference doesn’t just come from the emotional stakes and the possibility of death row for the defendant. The entire process, from the time charges are first filed, all the way through to verdict and sentencing, can be confusing, emotional, and difficult for all involved. The attitudes and motivations of the prosecutor and law enforcement officers attached to the case are different than in other cases. In short, it is absolutely vital that anyone facing murder charges gets a lawyer with experience.
