Have You Been Accused of a Homicide in Hawaii?
- Prison is a near-certainty in most homicide cases. Even if the death was accidental, a jury may still find you liable. We are not talking about years in jail. We are talking decades.
- Homicide trials are scandalous and very often picked up by state and local media. You may have your 15 minutes of fame for all the wrong reasons. Your reputation could be destroyed overnight.
- A homicide conviction can destroy a marriage. It is possible you may never be able to see your children again.
I’ve Been Accused of a Homicide. Now What?
If you are already in custody, do not cooperate with law enforcement. If you are asked questions about the case, request to have an attorney present. If family or friends want answers, tell them to be patient. Under no circumstances should you discuss the case with anybody but your attorneys.
What Do States Look at to Determine Punishment?
- Was the death caused by negligence, such as a drunk driver killing a pedestrian? Or did the accused willfully intend to kill another person?
- If the death was intentional, was it done in cold blood (preparation went into the murder), or was it a crime of passion (the killing of a spouse who was caught cheating).
- Did the accused have a legal right to kill the victim? For example, it is legal in every state to defend you and your family from a home intruder.

Frequently Asked Questions About Homicide Defense
Absolutely you do. And for a number of reasons:
- You do not know what the government has against you. The state will say almost anything to get a confession out of you. You cannot know what they have for certain until you hire a defense attorney to begin probing the prosecution’s case.
- Even if incriminating evidence is present, it may not be admissible in court. One mistake on a warrant could lead to certain evidence being thrown out entirely.
- Even if the incriminating evidence is present and finds its way into your trial, it still may not be a silver bullet. Bilecki Law Group has managed to turn the government’s own forensic evidence against them on dozens of occasions.
Homicide is often broken down into two types: manslaughter and murder.
Manslaughter is a homicide that occurs due to the negligence of the accused. It may be voluntary (done in the heat of passion) or involuntary (accidental, such as a drunk driving accident.)
Murder is a homicide that occurs with willful intent. First-degree murder is the cold-blooded killing of another person, usually after extensive planning. Second and third-degree murder is often without premeditation, and can sometimes be brought down to voluntary manslaughter.
