What is first degree murder?

Variations in the law exist across different jurisdictions and it is therefore important that Tennessee residents seek state-specific guidance on the criminal matters that affect their lives. This post will address how Tennessee defines first degree murder and it is important that readers remember this definition may be different in different states. Consultation with a local criminal defense attorney can help a person facing violent crime charges to get the best help possible.

Different ways that a plea deal may be negotiated

When a Tennessee resident is charged with a crime they may be asked to enter a plea regarding the charges. For example, they may plead not guilty and claim that they are innocent of the charges. They may also plead guilty and accept what is said about their conduct as true. They may also attempt to negotiate a better position for themselves in exchange for entering a plea that the prosecutor accepts as sufficient.
