First-Degree Murder Charges in Illinois
Posted on behalf of Donahue & Walsh, P.C. | March 3, 2021
In Illinois, if you are convicted of first-degree murder, you will no longer face the death penalty, as it was abolished in 2011. However, you will face a maximum sentence of a life in prison. View the specific Illinois laws regarding first degree murder here, according to the Illinois Statutes.
When so much is at stake, you need a strong defense. A conviction will severely taint your quality of life. It could lead to jail time, fines and a criminal record that will follow you forever. Being labeled as a “criminal” inhibits future employment, housing and educational opportunities. Ensure your freedom and reputation are both protected, by contacting Donahue & Walsh, P.C.
