Milwaukee man faces homicide charges after drug deal goes awry

Simple choices individuals make can spiral out of control quickly. Some of these choices can affect other individuals and their loved ones forever. When these choices are serious and involve illegal activity, an accused defendant should create a strategic defense plan. Recently, a Milwaukee man was charged with homicide and faces serious penalties.

According to police, the Milwaukee man is facing multiple criminal charges, including reckless homicide and armed robbery, after he allegedly killed a man. Police say that the Milwaukee man was attempting to buy marijuana from another man, but when he was asked to pay $700 for the drugs, he revealed a gun. According to police, the accused then allegedly told the other man and two other individuals to get on the ground. Police records show that the Milwaukee man then stole the drugs and money and proceeded to shoot the other man in the back.

A homicide charge is a serious criminal charge, which can carry life-changing penalties. Homicide is defined as the killing of another human being. It is important to note that not all forms of homicide are considered a crime. However, some classifications of homicide, such as murder and manslaughter, are crimes in Wisconsin and elsewhere. Being convicted of a homicide offense could mean spending life in jail and receiving scrutiny from possible future employers, friends and family. A person facing a homicide charge should be aware of their possible defenses, which may include self-defense or coercion.

Being accused of homicide is an extremely serious matter that could have many negative consequences. All defendants deserve a fair trial and are presumed innocent unless proven guilty. An experienced criminal defense attorney can often help prepare the best defense available to those accused of these serious crimes.
