Different Classes of Florida Manslaughter Charges

Whether you intended to cause someone harm or not, federal and Florida State laws can punish you vigorously. Although manslaughter is a lesser charge than murder, it still pertains to the act of killing another person.

Voluntary manslaughter concerns the act of killing someone without premeditation. In some cases, the court may rule that somebody or something provoked you to act aggressively or defensively. That single fact can distinguish between a manslaughter charge and a murder charge.

Involuntary manslaughter concerns an act in which one person kills another without intention. For instance, if you drove DUI and hit and killed a pedestrian, you could face an involuntary charge, since you obviously did not intent to commit that crime.

Penalties for Florida Manslaughter

Depending on the facts of the case:

  • a manslaughter conviction is punishable by up to 15 years in prison;
  • if a firearm was used up to 30 years in prison and a mandatory minimum of 25 years;
  • Aggravated manslaughter of a child is punishable up to 30 year in prison, which can be increased to life in prison if a firearm was used, plus a mandatory minimum of 25 years imprisonment.

How We Prepare Your Florida Manslaughter Defense

Even relatively straightforward manslaughter cases can lead to intense, complex criminal trials. After all, the stakes are extremely high. Someone – or, perhaps, many people – died. The prosecution will be deeply committed to getting a punitive outcome.

The criminal defense attorneys at the TK Law Firm will review your case from every legal angle. Our attorneys will mount a vigorous and detailed defense, protecting you from exaggerated charges, faulty or insufficient evidence, and improper police procedures.

Our attorneys will launch an exhaustive investigation of the scene, State’s evidence, police files, witness testimony and many other factors to uncover evidence to support your case and to cast doubt on the prosecution’s charge. Our law firm will engage medical, forensic, and other specialists to produce expert testimony for your defense.

In some cases, defendants can challenge the legitimacy of the prosecution's evidence. In other cases, your defense may hinge on whether the court believes that you never intended to commit violence. Subtle distinctions in your trial preparation can mean the difference between a decade-long jail sentence and a much reduced punishment (or, potentially, no punishment at all).
