Voluntary vs. Involuntary Manslaughter

Although manslaughter is a lesser charge than murder, any type of criminal homicide is an extremely serious matter and will be prosecuted with great tenacity. Manslaughter charges in Nevada are divided into two different categories: voluntary and involuntary. Voluntary manslaughter is defined as an impulsive killing that is committed in the heat of passion, most often when a person is provoked and in an emotionally fragile state. Unlike murder, voluntary manslaughter is not premeditated in any way.

A conviction of voluntary manslaughter can carry the following penalties:

  • Up to 10 years in prison
  • Fines up to $10,000

Killings that are unintentional and result from the commission of an unlawful or negligent act are classified as involuntary manslaughter, or negligent homicide. Examples of involuntary manslaughter include handling a loaded gun that accidentally discharges and kills someone, or striking a pedestrian with one’s car while speeding, known as vehicular manslaughter.

An involuntary manslaughter conviction can bring:

  • Up to 4 years in prison
  • Fines up to $5,000
