Murder is defined as taking another’s life either with intent or wicked recklessness. Your trial will be heard in the High Court of Justiciary before a jury and you will be represented by a Senior Advocate, known as Counsel, or a Solicitor-advocate instructed by us on your behalf. In some more complex cases you may have both Senior and Junior Counsel appointed. We have extensive experience in defending those accused of murder, attempted murder and culpable homicide.
You may have a complete defence to the charge or it may be reduced to a lesser charge upon evaluation or testing of the evidence against you. For example, a murder charge may be reduced to that of culpable homicide or attempted murder may be reduced to that of a serious assault.
Our specialist Criminal Defence Lawyers in Paisley and Greenock will identify any defence you may have and advise you on every aspect of the evidence against you, prepare your case to the last minor detail and represent you at every court appearance and consultation.
Culpable Homicide Solicitors, Paisley & Greenock
Culpable homicide is charged when an accused has caused the death of a victim by his actions or failure to act but there was no intention or wicked recklessness which exists in the charge of murder. You may have a complete defence. A murder charge can be reduced to culpable homicide depending on the facts and circumstances of the particular case. This is clearly a serious charge and a conviction will attract a significant prison sentence. It is important that you ask for legal advice straight away.
