Attempted Murder Lawyer in Los Angeles
If a person has acted deliberately and intentionally with extreme disregard for human life attempting to inflict fatal bodily injury on another person, then that person may be charged with attempted murder.
Although attempted murder charges are less severe than murder charges, the penalties are still severe and a conviction may result in 60 and up to 108 months in prison.
Specific Intent Crime
Attempt is a specific intent crime and according to California Penal Code section 664/187, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant acted intentionally and deliberately.
The prosecution must not only prove that there was a specific intent but also that there was a substantial step taken towards the commission of the attempted crime.
