Voluntary & Involuntary Manslaughter
Voluntary manslaughter is intentionally killing another person, while involuntary manslaughter is unintentionally, unlawfully killing. Regardless of whether the killing was intentional or not, a conviction can result in a sentence of up to 20 years in state prison. When faced with charges that are this serious, it is important to hire a qualified and experienced criminal defense attorney.
To secure a conviction for voluntary manslaughter, the prosecution must prove:
- Intent to harm or kill
- Killing without excuse
- Use of excessive force in self defense
- Use of excessive force in defending another person
When there is no evidence of intent, prosecutors often operate on the theory of involuntary manslaughter. This involves situations where killing was caused by reckless conduct or battery that the defendant knew, or should have known, could result in substantial harm or death. A conviction for manslaughter jeopardizes your freedom and your future.
