Scottsdale Manslaughter Defense Attorney

A less serious charge than murder, manslaughter is most commonly charged when the defendant is accused of causing the death of another person by acting recklessly. You could be charged with manslaughter in Scottsdale for:

  • Recklessly causing the death of another person
  • Assisting a Suicide
  • Killing someone as a result of a quarrel or in the heat of passion
  • Being coerced into killing someone upon threat of unlawful deadly force
  • Knowingly or recklessly causing the death of an unborn child by injury to the mother

Many Scottsdale manslaughter cases involve DUI's and other traffic crimes. For example, if you are involved in an automobile accident that resulted in the death of another person (even a passenger) and also accused of being impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash, you could be charged with manslaughter. Other Scottsdale manslaughter cases involve "heat of passion" killings, where the accused has been provoked and unintentionally loses control. As an experience Scottsdale manslaughter defense lawyer and former Arizona prosecutor, Joshua S. Davidson understands that each case is unique and personally consults with his clients to develop the best defensive strategy.

Penalties for Being Convicted of Manslaughter in Scottsdale

Because of manslaughter's status as a class 2 felony and dangerous offense, a manslaughter conviction or a guilty plea means a prison sentence of 7 to 21 years in the Arizona State Department of Corrections. In addition to parole, a manslaughter conviction can stay on your record for a long time and effect your employment even after you have served your prison sentence. With so much at stake it is crucial that you find qualified legal representation. The Law Office of Joshua S. Davidson will work toward diligently examining every detail of the prosecution's case - from witness statements to forensic evidence - and explore every possible option to have your case dismissed or your charges reduced.
