What is Manslaughter?

Manslaughter is a serious criminal offense in Texas, and it involves the unlawful killing of another person without premeditation or intent. Unlike murder, which requires the specific intent to cause death, manslaughter charges typically result from reckless actions or negligence that leads to a person's death. It's important to note that manslaughter can be classified into two main categories:

  • Voluntary Manslaughter: This occurs when a person causes the death of another in the heat of the moment, often during a sudden quarrel or fight. While there may not be premeditation, there is still an intentional act involved.
  • Involuntary Manslaughter: Involuntary manslaughter, on the other hand, is characterized by the absence of intent. It happens when someone unintentionally causes the death of another person due to reckless behavior or negligence.

What are the Penalties for Manslaughter in Texas?

The penalties for manslaughter are severe, and they can have life-altering consequences. Manslaughter is deemed a second-degree felony in the state of Texas. If convicted of manslaughter, you could face:

  • A prison sentence ranging from 2 to 20 years
  • Fines of up to $10,000

Defenses Against Manslaughter Charges

Some common defenses against manslaughter charges could include:

  • Self-Defense: If you were acting in self-defense or defending another individual when the incident occurred, we could argue that your actions were justifiable.
  • Lack of Intent: In cases of involuntary manslaughter, we may be able to demonstrate that you did not act with the intent to harm or kill, thereby reducing the charges.
  • Mistaken Identity: We can investigate whether there is any doubt about your involvement in the incident or establish that you were not the responsible party.
  • Alibi: If you have a verifiable alibi that places you elsewhere at the time of the incident, we can use this evidence to challenge the charges against you.
  • Evidence Suppression: Our attorneys can thoroughly review the evidence against you to identify any procedural errors, violations of your rights, or unreliable evidence that can be suppressed.
