Cook County Criminal Defense Attorney can Fight for You

Murder and manslaughter are two different charges. While murder involves malice and aforethought prior to committing the crime, manslaughter charges usually stem from negligence or wrongdoing. Typically, a prosecuting attorney will stop short of nothing to see that you are penalized for such charges. You need to work with an aggressive attorney who is not afraid to defend you and your rights. You need to contact Fred Mark Dry to receive outstanding legal representation.

Book Cover

The state of Illinois recognizes two types of manslaughter charges: voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. These charges are very different in nature, but both carry serious penalties. Voluntary manslaughter can occur in the “heat of passion” or when, for example, during a heated argument one person shoves another person down a flight of stairs, thus causing their death. You can also be charged with involuntary manslaughter if you acted in a negligent or reckless manner that caused death to another person, such as drunk driving, which can also be charged as a reckless homicide.

What to do When Facing Manslaughter Charges

After an arrest or accusation of manslaughter, it is important that you act quickly to defend your rights and freedoms. There is a lot at stake; if you are convicted, then you may be facing felony charges, years in prison, and risk not being allowed probation or parole. When you have been arrested, or if you know that you are under investigation for manslaughter charges, you need to contact Attorney Dry.
