Minimum Sentence for Manslaughter Conviction

Client was charged with manslaughter after the man she shared an apartment with was found dead. Client faced up to ten years in State prison. Client maintained that the incident was initiated by the decedent. I hired an expert to review the autopsy, which confirmed client’s account and also found inconsistencies in the medical examiner’s initial report. Motions were filed to this effect, and the State’s plea offer was lowered to the lowest end of the sentencing range: five years.
