Involuntary Manslaughter in Detroit
There are two distinct types of manslaughter that a person can be charged with, which is a different crime entirely than the charge of murder. In involuntary manslaughter, there is no intent to kill, as opposed to voluntary manslaughter cases which do hinge on intent. The difference in any manslaughter case compared to a murder case is that premeditation or planning is not a factor. All manslaughter, murder, and other homicide cases are very serious, and should be handled by the most experienced Detroit violent crimes defense attorney possible.

Involuntary Manslaughter Laws in Detroit Michigan
While voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter are different offenses, they are dealt with by the same section of the Penal Code and punished similarly. Obviously, at the court’s discretion, penalties for intentional killing can be more than those for unintentional killing, but so many details go into a homicide case that it is difficult to label one as definitively more serious than the other.
Involuntary manslaughter charges only occur when intent was never a factor in the case. If, in the heat of the moment, a person’s intentions changed, voluntary manslaughter charges could result. Involuntary manslaughter in Detroit is just as serious of a charge, however, and should likewise be dealt with by a qualified criminal defense lawyer. The attorneys at Grabel & Associates are available 24/7 to begin fighting with you or your loved one as you fight for a beneficial case result.
