Manslaughter Lawyers In Albany, NY
Manslaughter is a distinct crime from Murder. It’s defined as the intentional killing of another human being without premeditation or malice. There are two ways it’s classified within New York’s legal system and we specialize in both. In-Voluntary Manslaughter and Voluntary Manslaughter.
Voluntary manslaughter can be thought of as murder that occurs in the heat of the moment. Meaning there was no premeditated intent to kill, but something provoked the other person into killing the victim.
In-Voluntary Manslaughter could be best described as a reckless killing or accidental. For example, if you get into an accident and end up killing the other and found to have been driving while intoxicated, you could be charged with In-Voluntary Manslaughter.
Though Manslaughter is a very serious crime and the penalties are absolutely severe, sentences are far more lenient as opposed to a Murder conviction which might involve premeditation or prior intent.
