California Criminal Defense Lawyers
Manslaughter is defined as the crime of killing another human being without premeditation and without prior planning. Manslaughter can be voluntary or involuntary. It is considered voluntary manslaughter when an intentional killing of another human being takes place. It is determined to be involuntary murder when the death of another is unintentional. Vehicular manslaughter is a form of involuntary manslaughter that is an unintentional killing which takes place while a person is driving recklessly or is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A manslaughter charge is taken very seriously in California and can have very harsh consequences. The penalties that may result due to a manslaughter conviction include:
- County jail or state prison sentence
- Harsh fines
