Attempted Murder Defense Attorneys

Header Line

If you’ve been charged with attempted murder in Florida, you need to seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.

Attempted murder in the first degree occurs when a person makes a planned direct action to cause the death of another person.  It requires premeditation and acting upon that premeditation.  A conviction of first-degree attempted murder is punishable with life imprisonment.

Attempted murder in the second degree occurs when there is no premeditation, and, like manslaughter, may be referred to as a “crime of passion.”  Second-degree attempted murder is punishable by imprisonment for up to 15 years.

Factors influencing whether an attempted murder charge will be considered first or second degree include (but are not limited to):

  • Whether the offense was related to gang activity
  • Whether the offender had a previous criminal record
  • Whether a firearm was involved
  • Whether the offense was committed against a public official, police officer, or member of Congress

Homicide
Homicide occurs when one person causes the death of another.  Homicide can be divided into different categories, not all of which are crimes such as murder.  There are situations in which homicide is justifiable, including self-defense.

Manslaughter
Manslaughter is the killing of a person by another person without any prior intent.  Manslaughter is separated into two categories: voluntary and involuntary.
Voluntary manslaughter includes cases where an offender kills another person while committing a felony, or in the heat of passion.
Involuntary manslaughter occurs when one person is responsible for the death of another through negligence or while committing a non-felonious act, including reckless driving.

Murder
Murder is the premeditated unlawful killing of one person by another.  One of the principal differences murder has from manslaughter is premeditation.
