Types of Murder Charges in Florida
In the State of Florida, the illegal killing of a person is split into two crimes: murder and manslaughter. Murder is charged in the first, second, and third-degree. Manslaughter can be charged by act or procurement, which is voluntary. Malice and/or premeditation separate murder from manslaughter. The penalties for murder will depend on whether or not the death was an intentional act, a dangerous act, or a reckless act.
In Florida, if you are engaged in the commission of a dangerous felony and someone is killed, you can be charged with murder. This applies even if you did not kill the person yourself, and even if you were merely a look-out. This is called felony first degree murder and is punishable by life in prison or even the death penalty.
A legal homicide is one done in self-defense or in defense of another person. This can be done to prevent another serious crime, including rape, manslaughter, or robbery. Excusable homicide is one defense strategy that our defense lawyers can use for your case. If we can prove that the killing was justified or in self-defense, you may get your case dismissed.
