Murder

Morristown Criminal Defense Attorney

Murder Charges

Murder is a very serious matter in the state of Tennessee. Murder, aside from manslaughter, is essentially divided into two categories:

  • First degree murder
  • Second degree murder

Each has its own elements that must be proven in order to charge or convict an individual of this crime. First degree murder is the premeditated or intentional killing of another or the killing of another during the commission of a dangerous felony such as an act of terrorism, burglary, or many other crimes.

Second degree murder is the knowing killing of another or any death that results from the distribution of schedule I or schedule II drugs that result in the death of a person.

Severe Penalties

If you have been charged with second degree murder then you could face penalties of prison sentences for 15 to 25 years. If you have been charged with first degree murder then you could face life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, life imprisonment with the possibility of parole after 51 years, or in some very serious cases, you could face the death penalty.

Client Testimonials

We work within our clients time frames, guidelines & unique budgets
    Mr. Bowlin represented me on an assault charge. My bond conditions wouldn't allow me to go home to my husband and children. The day after my arrest, on a Sunday, Troy met with me and my family to discuss my unfortunate arrest. The very next morning Mr. Bowlin was able to get my bond conditions lifted allowing me to go home to my family. His office went above and beyond the call of duty which resulted in a dismissal of my charge.
