Murder suspect in September murder apprehended in December

When you are accused of murder, a warrant will likely be issued for your arrest. This is a serious matter because it means that the authorities will likely spend time and resources to find you.

People who are in this position should probably work with someone familiar with the criminal justice system to determine a course of action. Oftentimes, getting the ball moving on a defense prior to the arrest is possible.

If you know you are wanted, you might have the option of turning yourself in. Of course, not everyone will do this. Not turning yourself in could mean that you are living on borrowed time.

The recent case of a 21-year-old murder suspect shows that the police might not catch you right away, but this doesn't mean that you won't be caught. The man was arrested on Dec. 15 for a double homicide back on Sept. 10.

For more than three months, he was free. He was apprehended by the FBI-led Atlanta Metro Major Offender's Task Force and the Atlanta Police Department. He stood for his first court appearance the day after his arrest.

Currently, the man is being held at the Fulton County Jail. He doesn't have a bond.

The severe penalties of a murder charge should fuel people facing this matter to get moving on a defense. You need time to scrutinize everything in the case so that you can determine what direction you want your defense to move. The process won't be fast, so make sure you don't wait until the last minute to get things moving.
