Voluntary Manslaughter vs. Involuntary Manslaughter

The crime of manslaughter is broken up into two distinct charges. Voluntary manslaughter may be charged in situations where an individual causes another persons' death as a spontaneous, often passionate reaction to provocation. The penalty for voluntary manslaughter ranges from one to 20 years in prison.

Involuntary manslaughter may be charged when an individual engages in an unlawful act such as DUI, arson, and other actions that result in the death of another person. Convicted involuntary manslaughter offenders may face up to 10 years in prison.
