Involuntary Manslaughter & Voluntary Manslaughter
With charges of involuntary manslaughter, you're being accused of killing someone unintentionally, such as in a vehicle accident or while committing a burglary. Depending on the details of the case, a judge could give a sentence of up to 20 years in state prison, particularly if recklessness was involved.
With voluntary manslaughter charges, you're accused of killing someone without having planned it ahead. This could mean killing someone in the heat of the moment, retaliating to a verbal or physical attack that would take any reasonable person some time to calm down from and recover self-control. Or perhaps the charge stems from someone acting in self-defense but using excessive force. Adequate self-defense is not often viewed as including lethal force. What may have started as valid self-defense by the court could lead to a manslaughter charge if the self-defense led to the death of the initial assailant. A conviction on this charge could also be up to 20 years in prison, plus fines and restitution.
