Depending on the degree of murder, courts may determine sentencing in various ways. Mitigating or aggravating factors of your case may play a role in deciding your sentence, and we can help investigate your incident to understand the relevant factors of your situation. In Alabama, the judge also has the ability to override the jury’s decision of life imprisonment in favor of the death penalty, which often occurs with capital murder charges.
Capital murder often involves premeditation, or thinking and planning ahead of time about killing the victim. It also requires willful action and may carry a sentence of life in prison or capital punishment, which is the death penalty, usually by lethal injection or electrocution.
At Mark Bishop Turner, Attorney at Law, our experienced Birmingham criminal defense attorney can investigate your incident by requesting police reports, talking to witnesses, and examining documented evidence to help seek a favorable outcome.
When determining the degree of murder charges, courts will consider several factors. These include the circumstances of the incident, the mental health and criminal history of the defendant, and the motive of the defendant. Our Birmingham criminal defense lawyer has defended hundreds of clients in Alabama courts and can provide efficient representation throughout the process.
