Defendant had charges reduced from Murder based on the Defense of Self-Defense.
Our client was charged with murdering her estranged boyfriend during an argument. Even though she entered the victim’s house voluntarily and brought the weapon that eventually killed the victim, the Issa Law firm was able to persuade the State that the killing was likely self-defense. Our client pled guilty to Involuntary Manslaughter and was sentenced as a First Offender.
