Murder and Manslaughter Defense Lawyers in Lee County
Criminal Defense Lawyers Serving Fort Myers, Florida
Murder and manslaughter both involve the unlawful death of a human being, but these acts and the penalties associated with a conviction for each are very different. Murder is typically a preplanned killing of another, with malice aforethought. Manslaughter may include unintentional or accidental deaths, including those caused by negligence or recklessness. Both murder and manslaughter are considered violent felony offenses and therefore may count as “strikes” on your criminal record under Florida’s Three Strikes Law. However, murder is the more serious of the two and a conviction may even result in the mandatory implementation of the death penalty or life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.
