At Patel Defense, we believe the basic human right that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. There are several ways to defend against a murder charge. The first is to prove that the defendant did not commit the murder. This can be done by providing evidence that the defendant could not have committed this crime. An alibi witness can help to establish that the defendant was not with the victim at the time of the murder. The defense can also try to bring forth a different suspect to create doubt in the mind of the prosecution and jury.
In other cases, a defendant will admit to committing the murder, but state that they did not intend to. Self-defense is a strategy that is often used as a defense to murder charges. If a defendant can prove that he or she acted out of fear for life, then they are likely to have their charges reduced or dropped.
For this to be effective, the evidence must show that the defendant did not intentionally or deliberately commit the crime. If you were defending yourself, someone else, or your property, then you can possibly have all of your allegations and charges dropped.
Acquittal can be sought by using an insanity defense; however, these are very complex and can extremely complicated. These defenses are not brought forth very often and they rarely work. Insanity defense typically do not work because psychology is not an exact science. Because of this, there is often a difference of opinion between different psychologist and psychiatrists and the tests that they conduct. These defenses are not common because they have a less chance of succeeding.
