Areas of Practice
The offense of manslaughter is one kind of criminal homicide (causing the death of another without a lawful excuse). Though a lesser charge than murder, it is still a very serious offense. Negligent manslaughter occurs when a person acts carelessly and commits an act that is grossly negligent, though they did not intend to kill the other person. A person who is driving drunk and kills another person could be charged with negligent manslaughter, called, in this case, vehicular manslaughter. If a father leaves a loaded gun on a table, and his child picks it up to play with and ends up fatally shooting himself, the father could be charged with negligent manslaughter. The prosecution may have some say so into how the accused is charged, based upon the specific circumstances of the case.
