Man charged with murder

Those who are convicted of murder can face very stiff penalties, including life in prison. If a person is facing charges involving murder, or any felony, he or she needs skilled help from a defense attorney.

A man has been arrested and charged for first and second-degree murder in Spokane County. Recently, a shooting occurred in west central Spokane. Police responded to a report of a shooting at an apartment building on W. Dean. Police found a victim at the scene who shortly thereafter died of his injuries. The defendant was later arrested and charged. Police said it appeared that the victim and defendant knew each other before the incident.

When a person is arrested for murder, he can easily feel like the entire world is against him or her. The media extensively covers murders and the mere mention of being involved in a murder can permanently tarnish a person's reputation. But, the court of public opinion is not the official law of the land, and those who are facing murder chances do have the legal right to defend themselves. An attorney who specializes in criminal defense can help their client tell their side of the story. They can aggressively defend their client by offering alternative evidence and challenging the prosecution's evidence. An attorney understands the stakes are high and they do everything they can to make sure their client is well-represented.

When a person is facing serious criminal charges they need to have a serious criminal defense attorney on their side. This is not the time to take matters into their own hands.
