Manslaughter and Homicide Defense in Eastern South Dakota
When facing manslaughter or homicide charges, your freedom and sometimes your very life are on the line. The specific definition of “homicide” is the killing of another human being, lawful or unlawful. Manslaughter is a criminal charge typically involving an accidental, unintentional or negligent homicide which is unlawful. This means there is no legal excuse for the offense, as there would be if it had been sanctioned by the state (carrying out the death penalty), in self defense, or committed by a law enforcement officer in the line of duty.
