Seasoned Criminal Defense Attorney Working With Michael J. LaCilento, Attorney at Law

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 the 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.
