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.
