Defense Against First-Degree And Second-Degree Murder Charges In The State Of Illinois

To prove that a defendant committed first-degree murder, the prosecutor has to prove that a defendant intended to kill or cause great bodily harm to the victim.

A criminal defense attorney may raise a number of defenses against a first-degree murder charge, including but not limited to:

  • No proof of intent
  • Mental illness or insanity
  • Intoxication
  • Unreliable witness testimony
  • Mistaken identity
  • Faulty evidence
  • Police misconduct

If a first-degree murder charge is reduced or dismissed due to mitigating circumstances, such as acting in a moment of intense passion after being provoked by the victim, the defendant may still face a second-degree murder charge. Whatever your situation may be, contact Wolf Criminal Law today to discuss your options in a free and confidential consultation.

To learn more about our long record of success, please see our case results and client testimonials. In his more than 25 years of legal practice, criminal defense attorney Bill Wolf has secured many not-guilty verdicts along with the reduction and dismissal of charges.
