Lawyer For People Facing Homicide Charges

Not every homicide crime is charged as murder. Under Missouri and Kansas laws, there are various degrees of voluntary and involuntary manslaughter. Voluntary manslaughter may be charged if the victim's death occurred as a result of a criminal act. It generally results in a felony charge with a prison sentence for conviction. Involuntary manslaughter is alternatively referred to as criminally negligent homicide and may be charged as a class C felony in Missouri or a personal felony of severity level four or five in Kansas.

Vehicular manslaughter charges are often made against a driver who is found to be intoxicated at the scene of a fatal accident or whose negligence or misconduct behind the wheel caused an accident that resulted in the death of another driver or passenger. While the punishment is not as severe as a murder charge, these types of cases are often charged as a felony, resulting in a minimum prison sentence.
