Los Angeles Manslaughter Attorney

Criminal Lawyer Defending Manslaughter Charges

Although a manslaughter charge is still considered a homicide there are numerous other aspects that need to be dealt with by the law enforcement agencies involved, the prosecutor and judge. Below are the aspects of both voluntary and involuntary manslaughter:

  • Voluntary Manslaughter: This is a homicide that resulted in the absence of any hatred, revenge or malice connected to the crime. It has happened in the heat of a quarrel or dispute, apparently motivated by the victim themselves. It is rash behavior without any thought or reflection of what the outcome could be.
  • Involuntary Manslaughter: This is the resultant loss of life due to the recklessness or extreme negligence of another individual. We see it regularly in the news, deaths from drunk driving, street racing, running a red light etc. There was of course no intention to kill anyone, but that is the consequence, which is devastating not only to you, but the family of the victim(s).

Penalties for Manslaughter

In the State of California the punishment meted out for voluntary manslaughter is anywhere from 3 - 11 years in prison. With involuntary manslaughter, it can average from 2 to 4 years behind bars. Such penalties can have long ranging and very detrimental effects on your life and that of your family. It is vital that you have the experience and resources of our firm to help you fight these charges.
