Riverside Manslaughter Defense Lawyer
Aggressive Advocacy. Proven Results.
Although it is a lesser charge than murder, manslaughter is an extremely
serious crime. A conviction can result in a sentence of up to 11 years
If you have been charged with manslaughter, or if you were involved in
any type of incident that involved the death of another person, please
contact one of our experienced Riverside manslaughter defense attorneys at
Blumenthal Law Offices as soon as possible.
Following are the three main types of manslaughter and examples of actions
that may result in these criminal charges:
Voluntary manslaughter — Can occur during a quarrel or in the heat of passion: You hit
someone during an argument. He falls, hits his head on the curb, and later
dies of a brain injury. Or, angry at a crying infant, you shake the baby
to make him or quiet. The child dies of shaken baby syndrome.
Involuntary manslaughter — Involves negligence: While cleaning your gun, it goes off accidentally,
killing a passerby. Or, while working on the roof of your friend's
house, you accidentally bump him. He falls off the roof and dies.
Vehicular manslaughter — Negligence behind the wheel: While driving and talking on a cell
phone, you strike and kill a pedestrian. Or, you are involved in a fatal
accident while driving under the influence.
