Georgia Voluntary & Involuntary Manslaughter Defense Lawyer
Manslaughter is defined as the crime of killing another person without planning or premeditation. Manslaughter can be classified as voluntary or involuntary. It is deemed voluntary when there was no previous intent or planning to kill but an intentional killing takes place. Voluntary manslaughter typically takes place in the “heat of passion” and is reasonably provoked by the victim. Reasonable provocation is defined as an act that would cause a reasonable person to lose mental awareness and self control, allowing him or her to act on impulse without thinking first. “Heat of passion” may be provoked by fear, anger, terror or rage.
Involuntary manslaughter is defined as a death that results due to an act of recklessness or criminal negligence. It often occurs when a person commits a misdemeanor or low-level felony such as a DUI (driving under the influence).
