Atlanta Manslaughter Defense Attorney

Aggressive Manslaughter Lawyer

Manslaughter is defined as a form of homicide which is the unlawful killing of another human being without malice aforethought, or without the prior intent to kill another. Manslaughter breaks down into two subcategories - involuntary and voluntary. Voluntary manslaughter is generally an intentional homicide in the heat of passion or after a reasonable provocation. Often, voluntary manslaughter is a result of self-defense. Involuntary manslaughter, on the other hand, occurs when someone dies as a consequence of the defendant's irresponsibility or recklessness, or some illegal act which is not a felony. Manslaughter is differentiated from murder, which includes in its definition an intention or premeditation to kill.

Penalties for Manslaughter 

Manslaughter is a less serious crime than murder - however it still carries with it harsh penalties. If you've been convicted of involuntary manslaughter, you can receive from two to four years in prison - and for voluntary manslaughter anywhere from three to 11 years in prison.
