WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR MURDER IN ILLINOIS?
The minimum sentence for a conviction of murder in Illinois is 20 years in prison. Depending on the circumstances of your alleged crime, you could face additional time in prison. First-degree murder, which is the intentional, premeditated, and unlawful killing of another person, typically carries the heaviest sentence. Whether you are being charged with murder or attempted murder, we are prepared to fight for your future and a not guilty verdict in court.
The highest level of murder is one which involves special circumstances, such as:
- Murder of more than one person
- Murder of a young child or baby
- Murder of a witness (to prevent testimony)
- Murder of another as a hate crime
- Murder of a prosecutor or judge
- Murder of a law enforcement officer
