A Writer’s Guide to Murder, Assault, and Getting Away With It In Court
We writers love
murder and mayhem, don’t we? We kill, hurt, and maim our characters because we
love them. And sometimes, characters actually get charged for the crimes they commit on the page. So how does that
all work, anyway? And how can someone who’s done something like this, get away
I should probably mention that this is not a guide for planning The Perfect Murder. I am, in fact, not qualified to teach people in that area.
But I can talk about how to charge someone with crimes, and how to potentially defeat those charges under the right circumstances. Which is also fun, right? Right! Off we go.
