Paulding County Murder Defense Lawyers
Also Protecting Clients in Cobb, Douglas and Surrounding Areas
No matter where you go, violent crimes are considered among the worst offenses a person can commit. They signal to the public that there is a dangerous person who threatens their safety, making it tempting for law enforcement and prosecutors to punish harshly and violate rights during an arrest. If you were arrested on suspicion of a murder charge, it is important to work with our Paulding County murder defense attorneys. We can fight for your rights and help protect your future. At Henrickson & Sereebutra, we have more than 75 years of combined experience to help you strategize effectively.
The Consequences of a Conviction
When a person kills another person with willful intent, it is called criminal homicide and can carry some of the worst penalties possible. If you are convicted, any sentence you receive will be made worse if it is accompanied by another crime, such as robbery, burglary, or sexual assault.
Those convicted of murder face consequences such as:
- First-degree murder: life imprisonment or the death penalty
- Second-degree murder: 10-30 years in prison
- Voluntary manslaughter: 1-20 years in prison
Each of these cases requires the prosecution to demonstrate that the defendant had forethought about their crime and wished to cause a person’s death. While murder means a person intended to kill someone, voluntary manslaughter usually means the person’s death was an accident even though the assault was intentional.

Some effective defenses can include:
- Self-defense or defense of others: If you were sure someone intended to do harm and felt the only way to stop them was to end their life, you may be able to have your charges reduced
- Accidental death: By showing that the circumstances surrounding the death were not intentional, you may be able to face lesser charges
- Lack of criminal intent: As murder is considered a criminal act to end someone’s life, you may be able to avoid a life sentence in prison
