Were You Charged with Manslaughter?
You need to work with Michael J. LaCilento Attorney at Law!
Manslaughter is a very serious accusation, and if you have been accused
of any type of homicide or murder, it is absolutely imperative that you
immediately retain the representation of an attorney. I am Michael J.
LaCilento Attorney at Law, and I have extensive experience handling an
array of complex criminal defense cases. I am prepared to aggressively
pursue defense on your behalf. If you have been arrested, or if you are
under investigation for manslaughter, it is imperative that you immediately
retain the assistance of my firm.
The California criminal justice system does not take lightly to these types
of violent charges, and individuals could be facing life in prison or,
if convicted, the death penalty. Prosecutors will take all necessary means
to ensure that you receive the highest penalties available. Without the
assistance of an attorney, you could be facing an uphill battle against
the state or federal court system. In order to protect yourself, your
rights and your future, it is important that you have my office on your side.
Voluntary and Involuntary Manslaughter Law in California
In California, manslaughter is considered either voluntary or involuntary.
Both types of manslaughter are covered in California Penal Code 192.
Voluntary manslaughter in California PC 192(a) applies to an act of killing that is committed during a sudden quarrel
or in a heat of passion.
Involuntary manslaughter in California PC 192(b) is the unintentional killing of another person while committing a crime
that is not inherently dangerous (such as a felony) or while committing
a lawful act which could result in death without due caution.
Punishments for voluntary manslaughter in California include:
- Up to 11 years in state prison
- Up to $10,000 in fines
- Loss of your right to own/possess a firearm
- Community service
Punishments for involuntary manslaughter in California include:
- Up to 4 years in jail
- Up to $10,000 in fines
One of the key differences between voluntary and involuntary manslaughter
is level of intent, and the particular circumstances of a situation. If
you are facing a manslaughter charge in Corona, proving your innocence
and preventing an unfair sentence may depend on establishing an absence
of intent. In many cases, individuals who committed manslaughter in response
to a provocation or fear for their life may build their defense based
on these factors. Ultimately, a skilled defense attorney may help you
protect your rights with a personalized defense strategy.
