According to Florida law, manslaughter is the unlawful killing of another individual, but the homicide is accidental, unplanned, or involves no malice aforethought. For example, driving recklessly and killing another driver or passenger in an accident could qualify as manslaughter. The penalties for this crime are extremely severe. If you are convicted, you could face up to $10,000 in fines and up to 15 years in prison.

Voluntary & Involuntary Manslaughter

There are two types of manslaughter charges: voluntary and involuntary. Involuntary manslaughter is frequently a completely unintentional homicide. This type of homicide can occur when the defendant is carrying out an action likely to cause great harm or injury to another person or during the commission of a misdemeanor offense. Vehicular manslaughter is frequently charged as involuntary manslaughter. Voluntary manslaughter, on the other hand, involves a homicide committed in the heat of passion. For example, a defendant who was provoked and accidentally killed someone in a bar fight may face voluntary manslaughter charges.

While manslaughter is usually a second-degree felony, it may be charged as a first-degree felony if:

  • The crime was committed using a weapon or firearm.
  • A child or elderly person was killed as a result of culpable negligence.
  • It was committed against a firefighter, peace officer, EMT, or elderly person.
