Manslaughter vs. Murder

The primary difference between murder and manslaughter is that murder involves intent, premeditation, or deliberation. Manslaughter is either involuntary or is committed in the "heat of the moment," though, which means there is no planning or criminal intent. If it can be proven that you had a condition or complication that affected your judgment at the time of the alleged offense, it may be possible to demonstrate that your responsibility for what happened was diminished.

Your judgment could have been blurred due to:

  • Depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Side effects of medication
  • Insanity
  • Incited due to romantic conflicts
  • Intoxication

Make Your Side of the Story Heard

The key to success in fighting any type of violent crime charge is to begin working on your defense case as early as possible. Waiting too long just gives the prosecution an advantage that they did not have before. Do not lose another day wondering what to do to clear your name.
