Los%20Angeles%20Involuntary%20Manslaughter%20Defense%20Lawyer%20888-280-6839.jpgCalifornia Penal Code section 192(b) defines involuntary manslaughter as an unlawful killing that takes place during the commission of a lawful act which involves a high risk of great bodily harm or death and that is committed without due caution, or an unlawful killing that occurs while an individual is committing an unlawful act that is considered an infraction or misdemeanor.

Proving Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in Los Angeles

Pasadena police didn’t get their wish as the District Attorney declined to file involuntary manslaughter charges against Oscar Carillo of Pasadena, whose 911 call resulted in the shooting death of an unarmed man. The DA has kicked the investigation back down to the Pasadena PD for further investigation.

Despite the fact that Carillo hasn’t been charged, the DA could choose to file charges at a later date pending any new evidence collected by the police, and it would be wise for him to retain a Pasadena criminal defense attorney immediately.

The investigation surrounds Carillo’s attempt to get police to respond more quickly to a robbery that he was a victim of. Carillo’s backpack was stolen by Kendrec Lavelle McDade and another suspect last week. When Carillo called 911 to report the crime, he told the 911 dispatcher that two men armed with handguns stole his backpack. Carillo was lying about the men being armed, but figured that if police thought there were armed and dangerous suspects on the loose, they would pay more attention to his call than if it was two unarmed men.

Wallin and Klarich repeatedly warns all of their clients and prospective clients NEVER to speak to law enforcement. When we say NEVER we mean NEVER. Dr. Conrad Murray was accused of being responsible for the death of Michael Jackson. He retained a lawyer. He then along with his lawyer went down to the Los Angeles Police Department and gave a complete statement. The District Attorney then was able to play that statement to the jury. The statement made by Dr. Murray was very damaging and there is little doubt that it played a key factor in the jury finding him guilty today of involuntary manslaughter. He know faces up to four years in jail.

Why Dr. Murray’s lawyer decided to have him speak to the police is something that he will have to explain. Time and time again when suspects think they can “outsmart” the police they make a very risky gamble that almost always ends up with their gamble ending up in a guilty verdict when the case goes to trial.

Please for your own benefit and the benefit of your freedom and your future, take our advice. NEVER, EVER, EVER speak to the police. If you are suspected of having committed any crime contact our law firm immediately.

You come home from work, only to find your wife in bed with another man. In a sudden burst of rage, you kill them both. Another scenario is that a huge bar brawl breaks out, in the commotion you smash a pool cue over someone’s head and he dies. Despite the fact that this sounds like murder, it’s probably not. Under California law, it’s more likely to constitute voluntary manslaughter.

California’s voluntary manslaughter laws apply to killings that you commit

1. during a sudden quarrel, or 2. in the heat of passion.

On February 8, 2010 Michael Jackson’s Doctor has plead not guilty to involuntary manslaughter. Dr. Conrad Murray, a Houston cardiologist who was with Michael Jackson when he died on June 25, 2009, was accused today of being criminally responsible for his death.

Dr. Murray has been accused of giving Michael Jackson a lethal dose of propofol, an anesthetic that is used for sedation. It is believed by some that Michael Jackson was addicted to propofol, which he used to help him sleep.

Although Dr. Murray is accused of being responsible for the death of Michael Jackson, he is charged with involuntary manslaughter. Involuntary manslaughter is different from murder.
