Northwest Indiana Homicide Defense Attorney – Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Newton, and Jasper County
Matt LaTulip aggressively represents clients who are being investigated for, or have been charged with, violent crimes including:
- Felony murder, when someone dies while a felony is being committed
- Involuntary and voluntary manslaughter
- Reckless homicide
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Aggravated assault
- Battery and domestic battery
- Sexual assault and rape
No matter the circumstances surrounding the death, Indiana law requires that a person who intentionally killed another be charged with murder. However, if you killed someone in a fit of rage, or under extreme emotional stress, your sentence would be reduced by the “sudden heat” defense. If you didn’t have motive and didn’t mean to kill, the murder charge can be reduced to involuntary manslaughter. Under Indiana law, the state must also prove that you didn’t kill in self defense.
Whether charged with murder or a violent crime, Matt LaTulip will carefully investigate the facts of your case to take advantage of all of the defenses available to you. When there is forensic evidence of your guilt, he has the necessary skill in putting together a defense based on scientific data such as DNA.
