Charged With Murder? Call Christian
To be charged with a homicide related offense means facing prosecution for either a felony, or a capital felony. These are the most serious of criminal offenses and tend to be life-or-death situations for the defendant. A conviction for any homicide related crime will result in serious prison sentencing to be served in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice run/sanctioned penitentiary facility.
There are a number of defenses available for persons facing prosecution for homicide related crimes in Houston and our law firm has the needed experience to make a difference.
Christian Capitaine is a former criminal prosecutor and knows that the District Attorney will seek maximum sentencing and will do everything in their power, while exhausting every resource at their disposal, to get you convicted. This especially true for persons attempting to defend themselves or who are represented by an overburdened public defender.
Attorney Capitaine will stand in the way of that conviction and will fight to beat the charge and/or limit criminal penalties if you wish to proceed with a guilty or nolo contendre plea. Every case comes with its own details and circumstances. If you need help, don’t hesitate to call the Capitaine Criminal Law firm at 832-618-7831.
