Attempted Murder

1st Degree – Pre-meditation and malice aforethought

Felony Murder rule – Death occurs during the commission of a felony

2nd Degree – Malice Aforethought but no premeditation

Defense:  Self-defense; defense of another; (see previous cases: S Garcia, in which I created the first Forensic Reconstruction (animation video) in the County of Santa Clara, of a shooting based upon the coroner’s report of the bullet paths to establish that my client shot the deceased in self-defense resulting in a not guilty verdict)
