Mr. Barkemeyer has successfully handled Attempted Murder charges through trial. These charges require very thorough attention and an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney is necessary for a good defense.
The charges of Attempted First Degree Murder and Attempted Second Degree Murder carry a sentence of not less than ten nor more than fifty years without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence.
Any person who, having a specific intent to commit a crime, does or omits an act for the purpose of and tending directly toward the accomplishing of his object is guilty of an attempt to commit the offense intended; and it shall be immaterial whether, under the circumstances, he would have actually accomplished his purpose.
Mere preparation to commit a crime shall not be sufficient to constitute an attempt; but lying in wait with a dangerous weapon with the intent to commit a crime, or searching for the intended victim with a dangerous weapon with the intent to commit a crime, shall be sufficient to constitute an attempt to commit the offense intended.
