Manslaughter Charges in Beverly Hills, CA
Need legal representation? Let a Beverly Hills criminal lawyer fight for you!
It is a well-known fact that killing another human being is one of the most grievous crimes a person can commit. Unlike murder, which is intentional and often premeditated, manslaughter is generally characterized as the unintentional or provoked killing of another person. Such cases of manslaughter can fall under one of two categories:
- Involuntary Manslaughter: This crime is committed when a person causes the death of another person accidentally, either while performing an inherently dangerous act or while committing an unlawful act that does not amount to a felony.
- Voluntary Manslaughter: When a person is provoked to kill another person in the heat of passion or in a sudden quarrel, they could be convicted of voluntary manslaughter. This act closely resembles the crime of murder, but is slightly less serious in that the killing was provoked by something that caused the offender to temporarily lose control.
Either of these sentences can bring very serious consequences, including prison sentences of up to 11 years. You could also receive a strike on your record under the California Three Strikes Law, which could eventually lead to a life sentence in prison.
