Homicide is perhaps the most serious criminal offence in Canada, as it is elsewhere in the world. A conviction on a homicide charge, whether for first degree murder, second degree murder, manslaughter, or related charges, will result in severe penalties including the very real possibility of life in prison. If you are under investigation for or have been charged with any type of homicide, your life is literally on the line. It is vital that you retain a skilled and aggressive criminal defence lawyer with experience defending against homicide charges, like the certified specialists in criminal law at Cugelman & Eisen.
Homicide is the taking, either directly or indirectly, of another person’s life. The charges includes first degree murder, second degree murder, infanticide, criminal negligence causing death, impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death, and manslaughter. Canadian law recognizes that there are differing degrees of culpability on the part of a defendant, and so has created these different categories of homicide.
