Charges related to the death of someone else are among the most serious charges that someone can face in the state of Ohio. With respect to murder, and depending on the circumstances under which the death occurred, someone can be charged with either murder, manslaughter or homicide. Pursuant to Ohio law, murder is the unlawful, premeditated killing of another human being, whereas homicide is defined as causing another person’s death, whether lawfully or unlawfully. Involuntary manslaughter is defined under Ohio law as the death of another person that is caused by an oversight by the criminal defendant that causes the victim’s death. An example of this would be if you are changing the radio and do not notice someone walking into the street in front of your car, and your car plows into that person, killing them.
The penalties for these types of charges are based on the circumstances under which the victim’s death occurred. Depending on the specific crime a person is charged with, murder, manslaughter or homicide charges in Ohio can either be a first-degree misdemeanor, with a potential sentence of up to 180 days in jail, to a first-degree felony punishable by up to life in prison or even the death penalty.
Because these are such serious charges, it is extremely important that you have an experienced criminal defense attorney representing you in connection with any charges which involve the death of another person. Therefore, it is critical that you give your murder, rape or violent crime charge the level of importance it deserves by hiring only the best and most experienced criminal defense attorneys to represent you.
