A Georgia judge is weighing a request to remove the criminal case involving a 16-year-old from Superior Court and move it to Juvenile Court.
When we read about homicide trials in the newspaper, we often will read sentences like this one:
A man has been arrested 21 years after a Georgia woman was found dead in her bedroom. He has been charged with a number of crimes, including murder. Police said a relative's DNA led them to the suspect.
The Georgia Supreme Court has thrown out a man's murder conviction in Fulton County, faulting law enforcers for violating his right to remain silent.
A Georgia man has been arrested on charges that include malice murder and racketeering in the death of his former business partner.
If you participate in a violent crime, there is always going to be a risk that you'll be arrested and put in jail. Not all cases are the same, and there are ways to defend yourself. However, the way you present yourself to the police, the judge and others will make a difference to your case.

Homicide is the act of taking another person's life. This is a general term that does not factor in the specifics of the situation. Homicide charges are very complex, because there can be many intentions, circumstances and reasons for why another person dies at the hands of another.
Aggravated assault is generally defined as a type of assault that is much more serious in nature than simple assault. Many people believe that the definition of aggravated assault is an assault that involves a weapon. While an act such as this can be defined as aggravated assault, other acts such as an assault that takes place in the personal space of the victim can also qualify.
