Colorado Manslaughters Attorney

Information on Manslaughter Charges and Defenses

In Colorado, manslaughter is a Class 4 felony crime. This means a manslaughter conviction generally has a 2 to 6 year prison sentence and huge monetary fines, as well as several years of probation. If you are arrested and charged with manslaughter, contact a Colorado criminal defense lawyer from our firm immediately. It is essential, in cases as serious in nature as manslaughter that you speak with an attorney before answering any questions that the police may ask you. In many cases, law enforcement officials will try to use intimidation to get a defendant to confess to a crime they did not commit. Stress, anxiety and intimidation may lead someone to falsely confess to a crime, and that confession may be used against you in court.

Manslaughter varies from murder based on the intent behind the crime. Often times, manslaughter charges will be used if the person being charged was defending himself or herself from someone who was assaulting them. Murder charges always assume the worst premeditated intent behind the actions of the defendant. In manslaughter cases, it is generally believed that the defendant was not aware that their reckless actions may lead to someone's death, or they were defending themselves. Self-defense is a common defense in manslaughter cases, and depending upon the circumstances, it may be applicable in your case. There are many various defenses that our experienced, powerhouse team of manslaughter lawyers in Colorado can put in place in your case that may help you avoid conviction, or have your charges reduced.
