Savannah Manslaughter Defense Attorneys

Charged With Manslaughter? You Need an Aggressive Defense.

Manslaughter is a crime that occurs when an individual inadvertently kills another human being without malice or planning. Manslaughter is commonly charged in a wide variety of unfortunate situations such as car accidents and DUI, assault cases or in situations where an individual experiences a loss of control as a result of extremely traumatic circumstances, and inadvertently commits homicide.

There is a fine line between proving murder and proving manslaughter, and it is the burden of prosecution to prove that an accused offender killed the victim with prior intent, or whether the victim was killed in the heat of the moment or as a result of an accident. If an individual has been charged with manslaughter and not murder, it may be because the authorities recognize they do not have sufficient evidence to prosecute a murder charge for the particular circumstance or available evidence.

In many case, prosecution may opt to pursue a murder charge in hopes that a plea bargain will at least warrant a manslaughter conviction. Although prison terms for manslaughter may only reach 20 years, in comparison to life in prison or death for murder charges, these penalties are still substantial and can be devastating for the accused and their loved ones. For these reasons, it is critical to seek the services of a criminal defense lawyer.
