What is Manslaughter?

Manslaughter is considered a serious criminal offense involving the unlawful killing of another individual without premeditation or malice aforethought. Manslaughter is distinctive because, although it could be deemed as murder, there is an acknowledged emotional element behind the motivation for the attack. In other terms, manslaughter frequently occurs during the heat of passion.

What are the Penalties for Manslaughter in Arkansas?

The penalties for manslaughter in Arkansas can differ depending on the case's specific circumstances, as well as whether you are charged with voluntary or involuntary manslaughter. These penalties can significantly impact your life, including potential incarceration, fines, and a criminal record. Manslaughter is considered a Class C felony and is punishable by up to ten years in prison.

Defenses Against Manslaughter Charges

Some common defenses against manslaughter charges may include:

  • Self-Defense: If you acted in self-defense in order to protect yourself or another person, it may be a viable defense against manslaughter charges.
  • Accident: If the death was the result of a genuine accident, it may be possible to argue that you should not be held criminally responsible.
  • Lack of Intent: Involuntary manslaughter requires a lack of intent. If you can demonstrate that you did not intend to cause harm, this may be a valid defense.
  • Procedural Errors: If law enforcement or the prosecution made errors in the handling of your case or violated your rights, we may be able to have evidence excluded or have charges dismissed.
