Accused of Involuntary Manslaughter?
Aggressive Defense for Fulton County Residents Since 2005
Homicide is the killing of another person whether intentionally or unintentionally.
This encompasses murder, which is premeditated, and manslaughter, which
is unpremeditated. There are two types of manslaughter charges: voluntary
manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter.
Under Section 16-5-3 of the Georgia Code, involuntary manslaughter is the
accidental or unintentional taking of another person's life. If the
accused individual is guilty of dangerously negligent, reckless, or non-felony
criminal behavior, he or she
could face up to 10 years in state prison upon conviction. While involuntary manslaughter is often charged as a felony, in some
cases it may constitute a misdemeanor and carry a penalty of less than
1 year in prison.
Examples of involuntary manslaughter may include deaths caused by:
- Improper or unsafe use of firearms
- Driving while drunk
- Reckless driving
