We Have The Experience To Defend You

North Carolina law defines manslaughter as a killing that occurred in the heat of passion or in response to provocation. It is not a planned or premeditated crime.

Manslaughter is a class D felony with penalties that may include a minimum of 51-64 months in prison. Each case is unique, however. If you are convicted, your sentence will depend on the specifics of your case, including any mitigating factors or any prior criminal record you may have.

We can defend you against any type of manslaughter charge, including:

  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Attempted manslaughter
  • Gross negligence manslaughter

Attorney Plumides will thoroughly investigate the case against you, working with experts when appropriate. If there are mitigating factors, he will present them to the judge. Mitigating factors may reduce the length of your sentence.
