Planning a defense against felony charges

It is well known that felonies are more serious than misdemeanors or minor infractions. When individuals in Iowa and elsewhere are accused of a felony, they are rightfully concerned about how this charge could impact their future. The best way to protect oneself is by initiating a criminal defense that could help reduce or even dismiss the charges against the accused.

Defense options for first-degree murder charges

As a previous post highlighted, the negligence or recklessness of an individual could result in serious criminal charges. While not willful, an individual could face manslaughter charges for the death of an individual. On the other hand, a person could be accused of intentionally killing another, resulting in murder charges.

What are the elements of involuntary manslaughter?

There are few crimes that are worse than murder; thus, facing an accusation of such a crime can significantly impact the life of the accused. Whether it stemmed from an automobile accident or any other type of incident, the unintentional death of a person could cause an individual to face criminal penalties if it is proven that the accused was negligent or reckless.

Man faced with criminal charges following domestic dispute

What might seem like a normal fight between a couple could easily escalate into a serious ordeal. The disagreement could easily get out of hand, causing one or both individuals to take things too far. Although couples may fight from time to time, there are some events that should not occur in a dispute. When violence or threats of violence take place, one could face criminal charges stemming from a domestic assault.

Ketamine and drug charges

Drugs available to the general public have specific uses. When used in the manner they were intended, drugs can work effectively and are legally used. However, when drugs, prescription or not, are used in ways they were not designed, this could pose some legal issues. This is especially true for drugs that cause dependency and are thus sold for this purpose. Therefore, when a person is accused of possessing or selling such substances, he or she could face criminal penalties.
