Homicide

No offense is considered more serious in the criminal justice system than homicide.  Police, prosecutors, and the justice system respond overwhelmingly to a suspected homicide.  With penalties that range from 25 years to mandatory life sentences, anyone charged with homicide is in a fight for their life.

 

Attorney Zachar has handled multiple homicide cases from investigation through trial.  He has represented clients charged with intentional homicide, reckless/drug delivery (“Len Bias”) homicide, and OWI/Vehicular Homicide, and taken several complex homicide cases to jury trial. Attorney Zachar has completed advanced training in investigating homicide cases, forensic evidence, forensic pathology, toxicology, false confessions, and trial advocacy.  He is one of the few private bar attorneys in the state with the training and trial experience to be certified by the Wisconsin State Public Defender’s Office to represent clients in First Degree Intentional Homicide cases.  Attorney Zachar represented a client in a high profile First Degree Intentional Homicide jury trial in La Crosse County in which his client was found not guilty of all charges. In 2018 Attorney Zachar secured an acquittal in a First Degree Reckless Homicide trial in Jackson County and in October of 2019 he obtained a not guilty verdict in the high profile homicide prosecution of Erik Sackett.  If you or a loved one has been arrested for homicide, call us immediately and let us put our experience to work for you.
