Rochester Homicide Defense Attorneys 

Experienced Defense Against Homicide Charges in New York 

Homicide charges in New York include Murder, Manslaughter, Criminally Negligent Homicide, and Vehicular Manslaughter. Homicide charges will always be the most serious type of cases in the criminal justice system and carry the stiffest penalties. Most significantly, Murder convictions carry mandatory life sentences. Manslaughter convictions usually result in sentences that carry decades of incarceration. Even Criminally Negligent Homicide convictions bring years in prison. With such serious consequences, most homicide cases should, and do, go to trial. 

Investigative Tactics in Homicide Cases

Homicides are the most serious type of cases so they are only handled by the best and most experienced prosecutors after being investigated by the best and most experienced investigators. Every investigative tool will be used against you in an attempt to secure a conviction. These efforts may go so far as to include obtaining a search warrant in order to take your cell phone and review its contents. This cell phone data can provide investigators with texts, emails, search histories, and even location tracking information that will be used in a case against you. The police may also attempt to interview you, search for any type of forensic evidence such as DNA or fingerprints, and review modern surveillance measures such as Ring cameras or other recording devices. 

Challenges of Vehicular Manslaughter Cases 

Vehicular Manslaughter in is a unique kind of homicide charge in New York brought when somebody who is accused of driving while intoxicated kills another person with his car. While most other homicide charges require the accused to have intended his actions, vehicular manslaughter does not. More often that not, vehicular manslaughter is the result of an accident. Despite this, vehicular manslaughter convictions can land people in prison up to 15 years. These cases often have complicating factors which require experience in dealing with accident reconstruction, DWI laws, and toxicology reports.
