Criminal Charges: Capital Offense

Capital offenses are crimes that are considered so serious that life in prison, and in some states even death, is available as a possible punishment. The most common capital offenses are various types of murder and mass murder, rape, and betrayal of one’s country (terrorism, treason and espionage). Though twenty states and Washington DC have abolished the death penalty, it is an available punishment in the remaining states. If you have been charged with a capital offense, you will need a criminal defense attorney.
