Consequences of a Conviction
There are different types of manslaughter charges, but all are still considered violent crimes. Reckless conduct occurs when a person accidentally kills another person without any premeditation, and there are no other requirements for bringing this charge against someone. Vehicular manslaughter occurs when a person is involved in a car accident where the other person is killed. The cause must include reckless driving or intoxication.
