Difference between Manslaughter and Murder
In many cases that we have defended in the past, manslaughter charges are intricately tied to murder. When an individual is accused of murdering another, it is implied that there was a premeditated intention to kill. Charges of manslaughter are typically brought forth when an individual causes death of another by:
- Acting recklessly or negligently
- Without the intention of causing death
If death is caused by an individual that is acting out in the heat of passion, this could also constitute manslaughter. Typically, charges for manslaughter are less grave that those of murder. However, these are very serious charges and could compromise an individual's short-term and long-term future.
