We Are Here To Serve You

Previously known as voluntary manslaughter, second-degree murder is essentially first-degree murder with the addition of certain mitigating factors that lessens the severity of the still unjustified killing. A conviction for second-degree requires the prosecution to establish beyond a reasonable the elements for first-degree murder and then it is upon the defendant to establish by a preponderance of the evidence that he or she was under “serious provocation” at the time of the killing or that he or she acted under an unreasonable belief that the killing was justified.

Second-degree murder is a Class 1 Felony eligible for probation and day-for-day credit.

What Client’s Say

I can’t say enough great things about Omar Jaleel. I hired Omar to help a family member, who suffers from addition, ordered to a rehab facility for 15 months instead of being sentenced to jail. It took some time but he was dedicated and made it happen. A very difficult task in an overcrowded judicial system. Thank you for everything Omar.
