Los Angeles Manslaughter Lawyers

Accused of Manslaughter in Los Angeles? California Penal Code 192

If you or a loved one has been arrested or faces manslaughter charges in California, the next move you make can literally mean the difference between freedom and prison. It can mean the difference between being able to live life on your terms and living under the watchful eye of prison guards. It can mean the difference between being able to earn a living and being unable to get a job, hold on to your professional credentials, or even rent an apartment.


In California, a manslaughter conviction carries severe penalties, such as:

  • For voluntary manslaughter, a prison sentence of up to eleven years.
  • For involuntary manslaughter, a prison sentence of up to four years.
  • For vehicular manslaughter, a prison sentence of up to ten years.
  • A fine of up to $10,000.
  • A prohibition against owning or possessing a firearm – for LIFE.
