The Sanders Firm, P.C.: Homicide, Abortion and Related Offenses

If you have been charged with homicide, abortion or a related offense, The Sanders Firm, P.C. knows that it is imperative that you secure legal representation immediately. Such a charge is, of course, very serious and one of the most difficult things for any defendant is to face such a serious charge alone, without guidance, or the support of a legal professional. Homicide, abortion and related offenses fall under Article 125 New York State Penal Law.

Defining Homicide

The State of New York defines homicide in the following manner:

“Homicide means conduct which causes the death of a person or an unborn child with which a female has been pregnant for more than twenty-four weeks under circumstances constituting murder, manslaughter in the first degree, manslaughter in the second degree, criminally negligent homicide, abortion in the first degree or self-abortion in the first degree.”

With that definition in place, we can begin to understand the relationship between each major category- homicide, manslaughter, murder, abortion and self-abortion.

Securing Legal Counsel

If you are charged with any of the crimes listed under Article 125 New York State Penal Law, it is imperative that you secure a criminal defense attorney who has ample experience working in the New York State criminal justice system. Working with an attorney from the start will preserve your rights while also creating an important bond with a professional who will see you through the entire process.

Utilizing a criminal defense lawyer as early as possible affords you time to talk through your case with your attorney and gives your representative the opportunity to be involved when information is fresh in your mind and facts concerning the case are still being processed. This means your lawyer will be up-to-date right from the start and better able to handle developing information concerning your case while working towards planning your defense with you.
