Involuntary vs. Voluntary Manslaughter

There is a very distinct difference between voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter in the eyes of the law. Voluntary manslaughter means that, while the act was not premeditated, there was intent to kill. The crime may be committed in the heat of passion, preventing an individual from using discernment or judgment. Voluntary manslaughter is defined as the unlawful killing of another person due to a sudden argument or fight. The sentencing will depend on the final conviction that is handed down. Federal law normally requires fines and a prison sentence up to 10 years.

Involuntary manslaughter occurs when an individual unintentionally takes the life of another person. This is normally caused by reckless or criminal actions, such as drunken driving. To be charged with involuntary manslaughter, the prosecution must prove several factors:

  • Your acts resulted in the death of another human being
  • These actions were inherently dangerous or negligent
  • You had knowledge that your actions were reckless and could threaten others' lives
