California Law for Murder Convictions
Murder charges in California carry the highest forms of punishment and criminal sentencing, including the death penalty, lifetime prison sentence without parole or 15 years to life in state prison. According to the California state law, murder is "the unlawful killing of a human being or a fetus with malice aforethought" and is punishable under the 2012 revised Three-Strikes Law. Punishment varies based on your involvement in a capital murder, first-degree murder, or second-degree murder conviction.

A statute of limitation prescribes time limits for charging someone with a crime that was committed. After the period of the statute has expired, the accused criminal can walk away free. Under California state law, there is no statute of limitation for murder. Individuals accused of murder can be charged at any time in their life.
