Are you facing manslaughter charges in Michigan? Besides homicide, manslaughter is one of the most serious crimes that a person can be charged with. Manslaughter is defined as the unlawful killing of another human being without malice. There are two main categories for manslaughter; the categories are voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. Also, depending on the case, manslaughter can fall into more specific categories. For example, someone may be charged with vehicular manslaughter if their negligence on the road resulted in the death of another person.

Punishment for manslaughter can include:

  • Large Fines
  • Parole
  • Probation
  • Criminal Record
  • Incarceration

Death of another human being that is the result of someone's criminal negligence or carelessness can be classified as involuntary manslaughter if there was no intent to kill or cause harm. Although it might have been an accident, this kind of charge can come with severe consequences, so it is important to have attorneys on your side that will fight for a much better outcome.

Someone may be facing voluntary manslaughter charges if they murdered someone during the "heat of the moment" and lost all control of emotions. Let's say, for example, someone walks in on his or her spouse cheating on them and the person loses it, and kills someone. Although this can sometimes be charged under a degree of murder, it can also be voluntary manslaughter, depending on the exact details of the situation.
