Manslaughter in Colorado

Colorado Manslaughter Charges, C.R.S. 18-3-104

The crime of Manslaughter (C.R.S. 18-3-104) in Adams, Jefferson or Arapahoe County is charged when someone "recklessly causes the death of another person", or, "such person intentionally causes or aids another person to commit suicide". Manslaughter is a class 4 felony, with a presumptive sentence range of two to six years in prison. Being involved in such a serious matter concerning the death of another is challenging and deserves a criminal defense attorney fully equipped to fight for your freedom.

This crime is similar to Vehicular Assault, which involves Reckless Driving which results in the death of another. Manslaughter is charged when non-driving conduct, like shooting an arrow in a crowded subdivision, results in the death of another. Whether after a car falling off a jack-stand onto a friend, or after the death of a friend who falls from a canoe in a lake and drowns, police in Colorado will freely charge Manslaughter when a death accident occurs. Pressure from victims' families can influence the filing of these charges. District Attorneys often file this charge when a death results and the definition of other "intentional conduct" crimes does not fit.

Manslaughter in Broomfield, Douglas, and Denver County is a serious felony charge. Innocent conduct can be misinterpreted and charged criminally. The word "recklessly" is an important term and can be misinterpreted by DAs and police. A manslaughter conviction can haunt you for a lifetime, so with stakes this high, don't trust your case to just any attorney. Hire a full-time criminal defense attorney.
