In a horrific example of how a disagreement among neighbors can quickly get out of hand, a man facing first degree murder charges is set to have his day in Orange County criminal court. According to Jeff Weiner, of the Orlando Sentinel, Mr. Corey L. Thomas is being charged with murder because he allegedly shot Osceola Corrections officer Paris Williams back in May of 2011. Mr. Thomas apparently got into an argument with Mr. Williams who was his neighbor when the two of them exchanged gunfire. Mr. Thomas was able to get away but Mr. Williams was fatally injured. In addition to homicide charges, Mr. Thomas was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
If Mr. Thomas is convicted of 1st degree Murder, then he could face the death penalty. Illegal weapons charges can also be considered serious felony charges and carry serious prison sentences upon conviction. Mr. Thomas will need to hire an experienced and aggressive Orlando Criminal Defense Lawyer to help him fight these serious criminal charges.
