Young woman must defend against allegations of murder

Texas officials recently charged a young woman with homicide. According to a recent report, witnesses claimed to have seen a 59-year-old man fall down in the street after suffering a gunshot wound. At that time, they claim to have seen a girl get into a vehicle and threaten to run the man over. Shortly after, they state she did so.

The man died at the scene. Upon examination, the cause of death was determined to be blunt trauma caused by a vehicle and injuries from a gunshot wound.

At this time, the state has charged the young woman with murder. In Texas, there are multiple forms of murder that the state may pursue. Two of the more severe, first degree murder and capital murder, differ in the punishment that accompanies the charge. If charged with murder, the accused generally faces a prison sentence. If charged with capital murder, the accused could face the death sentence.

The charges the state pursues depends on the available evidence. Police are required to follow certain protocol when gathering and presenting this evidence. A failure to do so can result in questions about the authenticity of the evidence. In some cases, it can even result in dismissal of the evidence. This can lead to a reduction or dismissal of charges. As a result, it is important to build a defense against these charges. This is especially true when the charges involve a juvenile. A conviction at this young age can impact a child's entire future. Options are available. An attorney experienced in this niche area of criminal law can review the case and discuss their options.
