Voluntary vs. Involuntary Manslaughter — What’s the Difference?

In the state of Ohio, legislation is clear on breaking up manslaughter into two separate categories: voluntary and involuntary. There are key differences that separate these types of manslaughter and each will have different nuances during the criminal process.

As designed in Chapter 2903 of the 2010 Ohio Code, these two charges mean the following:

  • Voluntary manslaughter – This occurs should a person act in a fit of passion that stems from direct provocation by the victim. Unlike murder, there was no time to “cool down” and instead, the homicide occurred during the heat of the moment;
  • Involuntary manslaughter – There are many different situations in which this can occur, however, the cornerstone of involuntary manslaughter is that the homicide was not intentional. For example, should the homicide accidentally occur while committing a misdemeanor or felony, it would be classified in this manner.

Murder charges refer to a calculated and deliberate plan, whereas manslaughter does not have this premeditation. While the penalties for murder are of course much graver, manslaughter charges can still carry the potential of life-ruining penalties. At Gounaris Abboud, LPA you can get the powerhouse defense that you need. Don’t hesitate to see how we can defend your future.

They did absolutely everything possible to help reduce the sentence and charges faced. The fees for their services were worth every cent and superior to any public defendant representation.
