Manslaughter is the crime of killing someone without the intent required for murder, but the killing is nonetheless not accidental.
Manslaughter can be either Voluntary or Involuntary (Penal Code § 192(b)) depending on the defendant’s state of mind. Because of the potential complexity of the legal and factual issues involved in manslaughter cases and the high stakes for a defendant, it is extremely important to hire an experienced attorney as early as possible.
If you or someone you care about is facing a manslaughter charge or is charged with any violent crime, the criminal defense attorneys at the Weinrieb Law Firm can help explain the charges and properly defend against them. We can be reached twenty–four hours a day, seven days a week at (818) 933–6555.
