Murder Laws in Texas

Texas leads the nation in executions and is enormously proud of its “tough on crime” image. If you are charged with murder, prosecutors will likely try to convict you of capital murder, depending on your specific circumstances. However, there are numerous types of murder charges in this state. The difference between first-degree murder and second-degree murder is the former requires the killing to have been planned in advance. Second-degree murder is an unplanned murder, and it often is considered a crime of passion. Capital murder, on the other hand, is considered an unforgivable offense. These charges may be brought if you allegedly killed another person for money, murdered a firefighter or peace officer in active duty, killed a child under 10 years old, and more.

The Law Office of Cynthia Mendoza is able to defend against the following charges:

  • Manslaughter
  • Capital murder
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Criminally negligent homicide
  • Murder in the first or second degree
