Los Angeles Homicide Defense Attorneys
Southern California Criminal Defense Lawyers
In California, homicide is an act that results in the death of another human being. Criminal homicide can be caused by several factors. Typically criminal homicide is due to intentional or unintentional, premeditated, reckless or careless behavior on the part of another. Homicide in some instances is not always considered a criminal act (such as law enforcement carrying out the death penalty on a criminal or an officer killing a suspect or criminal as necessary for his or her job.)
Types of crimes involving homicide include:
A homicide committed intentionally with premeditation or malice aforethought.
The intentional killing of a human being, when the defendant had no prior intent to kill.
The unintentional killing of a human being.
A death that is unintentional and is the result of reckless driving, such as DUI.
