Manslaughter is not considered as serious as murder. This is due to the fact that murder is a pre-meditated crime. Manslaughter, on the other hand, is committed without pre-meditation or malice aforethought. Manslaughter can be committed accidentally, such as in the case of a car accident, or out of reactionary emotions. An example of the latter would be a man who finds his wife having an affair with another man. This is usually considered a crime of passion and charged as manslaughter. It is still possible, however, that it could be charged as murder. In some cases, it is possible to get the manslaughter charges dropped, such as when the action was committed out of self-defense. Your attorney may also be able to demonstrate to the court that your negligence did not lead to the accident and therefore you should not be charged with manslaughter because the death was an accident. Whatever the details of your case are, it is imperative that we get into action at once for the defense.
