Manslaughter is generally defined as the unintentional or accidental killing of one human being by another. Often times, manslaughter is broken down into categories such as "voluntary," "involuntary" or "vehicular" where the death results from a car accident. Manslaughter is generally a "catch all" charge brought where the prosecution knows they do not have strong enough evidence of intent to charge an individual with murder.
Do not be fooled that these cases will be investigated or prosecuted less vigorously because they fall short of murder. Any time a death has occurred, there will be significant pressure on law enforcement and the prosecution to ensure that someone "pays for it." Judges, who are by-and-large elected officials, will also come down hard on such perpetrators in order to appease the community and maintain the status quo amongst his or her judicial peers.
There can be a multitude of issues in play in a manslaughter case. Were drugs and/or alcohol involved? Did the individuals have a pre-existing relationship? Were the individuals involved in a dangerous or negligent activity when the death occurred?
There is significant room for interpretation and more importantly misinterpretation which means you need a highly skilled advocate in your corner.
Manslaughter cases are aggressively prosecuted to appease the community and ensure someone pays for the victim's death. We fight these charges aggressively and will not rush to plea you rights away.
A successful defense to manslaughter is founded on strategy. You need an experienced defense team of attorneys and criminal experts who have faced these charges on multiple past occasions and learned which theories play in front of a jury and which ones do not. Accident reconstruction experts, experts in the effects of drugs and/or alcohol and medical experts are often pivotal in these cases. We have the depth of resources, knowledge and skills you need to win in the courtroom if trial is necessary.
At LibertyBell Law Group, we have a team of trial attorneys with experience defending against manslaughter criminal charges.
