Orlando Manslaughter Attorneys
Fighting Your Charges in Orange County (Winter Park, Maitland, Wintergarden, & Apopka)
Manslaughter is a crime that is committed when a person unintentionally kills another person. Manslaughter is a common charge in traffic accidents or matters of assault, as well as situations where emotions may temporarily take over and cause an individual to lose control. Manslaughter is generally considered to be an accidental death, even if the perpetrator caused the victim physical harm.
There can be a fine line between manslaughter and murder, however, and it is important to make sure that you have the best Orlando manslaughter attorney available to represent you in your defense.
Penalties for Manslaughter
Manslaughter is commonly considered to be an accident of negligence, while murder demonstrates a clear recklessness or inconsideration for the lives of others in the commission of an act. Murder charges can be downgraded to manslaughter charges, which typically carry very serious penalties that are still a better alternative to the most serious murder penalties. Those who are found guilty of manslaughter will be convicted of a second-degree felony and may spend up to 15 years in prison, with thousands in fines.
