Blischak Law Firm Defends Manslaughter Charges in Arizona

The Phoenix manslaughter attorneys at Blischak Law Firm have handled numerous complex manslaughter cases in Arizona. Our extensive courtroom experience and legal knowledge have achieved results that come highly rated by peers and satisfied clients.

We will help you or your loved one defend against AZ manslaughter charges defined under ARS 13-1103:

  • Caused the negligent death of another person
  • Committed second-degree murder by provocation
  • Provided the means for assisted suicide to an adult
  • Forced someone else to commit second-degree murder
  • Caused an unborn child’s death by physically injuring the mother
  • Encouraged a minor to commit suicide with knowledge of intent

Manslaughter is not murder; the elements of pre-meditation and intent are different. However, a carefully planned and researched defense strategy is imperative if you or your arrested family member want a fighting chance at exoneration. Blischak Law Firm will identify the defensible points of your charges and carry out your chosen approach.

Manslaughter Conviction Penalties Are Severe

Manslaughter is a second-degree felony. Several criminal elements, such as action, circumstances, and intent, influence the penalties associated with a conviction. For example, driving under the influence can be more complicated than involuntary manslaughter. As such, you could face an enhanced sentence, but only if prosecutors can prove their allegations beyond a reasonable doubt. In the event this has happened, contact our DUI/DWI defense attorneys in Phoenix to learn more.

Our Phoenix manslaughter attorneys will defend you against the following standard sentences per ARS 13-702:

  • Presumptive: Up to five years
  • Minimum: Up to four years
  • Maximum: Up to ten years
  • Mitigated: Up to three years
  • Aggravated: Up to 12.5 years

Judges can increase or decrease these numbers according to the degree of severity proven by prosecutors and only after a jury trial conviction. However, due process of the law affords you a chance to challenge their theories, evidence, methodologies, assertions, and application of the law. If you hire us to represent your case, Blischak Law Firm will devote a significant focus of your defense around these concepts to identify where police and prosecutors may have gotten their allegations wrong.
