Aggressive Defense Against Manslaughter Charges & Accusations

Mobile Escambia and Baldwin County Alabama

There are two major categories of homicide: murder and manslaughter. The main difference between them is whether or not the perpetrator planned ahead, which is to say, "Was the killing premeditated?" If it can be proven that the killing did not occur in cold blood, a murder charge can be reduced to manslaughter and the next question is what kind of manslaughter will be charged. Voluntary manslaughter is the term used for a killing that was deliberate but not planned.

If the suspect committed the act in the heat of the moment, a "crime of passion," it would be considered voluntary manslaughter. Involuntary manslaughter describes an act of killing that was accidental and it can be further broken down into criminal or non-criminal involuntary manslaughter. The determining factor in this is whether the suspect was carrying out a lawful act or an unlawful act (such as driving drunk or using drugs) at the time of the homicide.
