Aggressive South Florida Criminal Defense Lawyer

Manslaughter is committed when a death or murder occurs which is not premeditated and occurs without malice aforethought. Manslaughter may be charged as voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, or vehicular manslaughter, depending on the circumstances of the case. For instance, if a death occurs that was intended, a person may be charged with voluntary manslaughter. Nonetheless, when a death is unintentional and severe negligence is implicated, a person may face charges for involuntary manslaughter. Vehicular manslaughter is when an offender is inebriated or impaired and causes the death of another person while driving a motor vehicle. Even though the defendant did not deliberately cause the death of another person, he or she will still be held liable and may face a manslaughter conviction as a result of his or her actions. All three types of manslaughter charges are very severe offenses and will result in a permanent mark on a person’s criminal record for life.
