Criminal Defense Next For Hillcrest Heights Murder Suspect

A Maryland murder suspect was arrested in another state this past week. According to the Prince George County Police, the man will be extradited to Upper Marlboro where he will face first degree-murder charges. The police believe the 23 year-old suspect, of Landover, shot and killed a 22 year-old after an argument near his home.

The charges are serious and could potentially result in a lifetime jail sentence. Though little is known about the circumstances surrounding the accident, the accused will likely mount a vigorous criminal defense strategy.

No matter what stage of the criminal prosecution an accused in part of, local Upper Marlboro defense attorneys can help their clients maneuver the legal landscape. In many instances, it may be wise for individuals under investigation to retain an attorney to help them through the process. Local attorneys can help ensure that an individual's constitutional rights are not violated and law enforcement officials do not overstep their bounds.

If an accused has already been charged, these criminal defense specialists can handle plea negotiations and/or vigorously defend against false or trumped up charges. Additionally, if there has already been a criminal conviction, a local defense attorney can help the convicted person through the appeals and sentencing process.

Criminal procedure is long a winding road. It can be difficult for anyone to traverse alone. But, with the help of a local defense expert, accused individuals can ensure that the system will work for them, not against them. After all, the defendant is innocent until proven guilty.
