Our homicide charge lawyers are here and ready to represent you or a loved one charged with a murder. A Hudson County Corrections Officer was recently arrested for two homicide charges. It is alleged that one of the victims was in a romantic relationship with the defendant. The alleged victims supposedly had just gotten back from a vacation before being gun downed. One of them was found in the car, the other a short distance from the car. The defendant was thereafter arrested, and allegedly confessed to both murders. In addition to facing homicide charges, he is also facing possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose.

A homicide charge, commonly referred as murder, is codified under the statute as 2C:11-3A. A homicide charge carries with a potential for life imprisonment. In addition to this, it can also carry a hefty fine of up to $200,000.00. Moreover, the other charge of possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose is a second degree crime. This carries a maximum of ten (10) years in a New Jersey state prison. It further carries a fine of up to $150,000.00. Lastly, both charges carry a presumption of incarceration. This means that if a defendant pleads guilty or is found guilty, it is presumed at sentencing they will be sentenced to prison time.
