Manslaughter Charges

Manslaughter is among the most serious of criminal charges that can be brought upon a person. Public sentiment is frequently harsh against those charged with violent crimes. Your constitutional rights may be overlooked in the rush of the prosecution to come to a judgement. If convicted of manslaughter, penalties can range from hefty fines and years of jail time to a life in prison sentence without the possibility of any parole.

Call now and set up your free consult to get started right away.

The legal definition of manslaughter is the unlawful killing of another person with no malice aforethought. It is a lesser crime than murder, and in some cases, we may fight to get your murder charges lessened to manslaughter. A person can also be charged with manslaughter in cases where it seems that only mere negligence was involved in the cause of death of another person.

An arrest or an indictment for manslaughter is a serious criminal charge that carries severe consequences. The penalties for manslaughter could potentially mean decades of jail time. Your life depends on having the expertise of an experienced and skilled criminal defense lawyer who can build a solid defense against your charges.

Vehicular Manslaughter

Vehicular manslaughter charges may be brought about when a driver causes an accident that results in the death of another. This includes the driver having been under the influence of drugs or alcohol; driving carelessly or recklessly; or in an illegal manner. If this behavior caused a motor vehicle accident that resulted in the deaths of passengers, occupants of other cars or pedestrians, they could be facing serious criminal charges.

Alabama has some extremely tough laws that govern vehicular manslaughter in connection with driving under the influence of alcohol. Often, prosecutors will try to prove that you where driving while intoxicated and acted in a reckless manner, resulting in the death of another person, when you may not have been.
