Murder Penalties in Round Rock, TX
Under state law, murder is classified as a first degree felony. Individuals
convicted of this offense can face a prison term lasting from five to
99 years as well as a $10,000 fine. If a court decides the crime happened
in the "heat of passion," the charges can be reduced to a second
degree felony. This offense can result in a prison term of two to 20 years
and a $10,000 fine.
If an individual is convicted of capital murder, the equivalent of first
degree murder, he or she can face the death penalty or life in prison
without parole. Defendants as young as 17 can receive the death penalty,
and our state does impose death frequently in these cases. Regardless
of situation and the charges filed against you, Attorney Magee is ready
to review the details of your case, gather evidence on your behalf, and
to craft a strategy to protect your rights and freedoms - and your life.
