Minnesota Manslaughter Defense Attorneys
Are you currently in a situation where you are facing criminal charges for, or an investigation involving, manslaughter? Our defense attorneys represent clients charged with manslaughter throughout all of Minnesota. We can provide legal counsel at virtually any stage of your case, even if formal charges have not yet been filed against you.
There are two distinct categories of manslaughter charges in Minnesota: (1) voluntary manslaughter; and (2) involuntary manslaughter.
- Voluntary Manslaughter: Involves a situation where a defendant intentionally causes the death of another person, but the criminal liability of the defendant is reduced of the specific circumstances surrounding the act. For example, a defendant who, in the heat of passion, intentionally takes another person’s life would likely face voluntary manslaughter, rather than murder, charges.
- Involuntary manslaughter: Less serious than voluntary manslaughter, and often involves a situation where the defendant caused the death of another person as the result of recklessness, or negligence. A drunk driver who causes a fatal car accident, for example, may face involuntary manslaughter charges.
Legal counsel is absolutely crucial in the face of manslaughter charges. You may face decades in prison if you are convicted. A manslaughter conviction will change your life, and may result in more than the loss of your freedom – as you face severe financial difficulties, a ruined career, and difficulty finding employment long after you have served your sentence.
Our lawyers will help you challenge your manslaughter charge, and work to avoid a conviction altogether.
It is important to act swiftly after you’ve been arrested, or charged with manslaughter. The sooner you involve a lawyer, the better able we will be to gather evidence, interview essential witnesses, and to address other important elements of your case.
