Manslaughter Charges

There are two types of manslaughter charges in Michigan, and while both can technically lead to the same penalties, most of the time voluntary manslaughter charges are the most serious. The difference between involuntary and voluntary manslaughter is intent. While premeditation is absent in both cases, voluntary manslaughter involves the intent to kill someone during a heated moment, or during the commission of another crime. Anyone who is accused of voluntary manslaughter should immediately get in touch with an experienced criminal defense attorney, as it is critical to begin your fight back against conviction as soon as possible.

As with all serious felony crimes, voluntary manslaughter can lead to extremely harsh criminal penalties. Contact Grabel & Associates now to learn more about defending against manslaughter conviction, and what you can do to protect yourself throughout every step of the defense process. We have the skill and experience needed to guide you to an exceptional case result.

Penalties for Voluntary Manslaughter

If you are convicted of voluntary manslaughter, you can be sentenced to up to 15 years behind bars and a fine of up to $7,500, according to manslaughter legislation. In addition, you will carry a felony record with you, potentially for the rest of your life. If you committed other crimes simultaneously, you could face additional penalties for those offenses as well.

If it is proven that you intended to murder a person and thought about it previously, you could be convicted of murder, which is an even more serious offense that can lead to up to life behind bars. Let our dedicated defense team protect you as you fight back against felony conviction, jail time, fines, and other serious penalties. We are always available for clients in Clinton and statewide.
