Defend yourself against involuntary manslaughter charges

Involuntary manslaughter is a term that refers to unintentional killing that is a result of criminal negligence or recklessness. It may also be the charge placed if a person is killed as a result of a low-level felony or misdemeanor crime. Also known as criminally negligent homicide, the term essentially means that a person's actions caused a death but that the death wasn't intentional.

Why do judges accept plea bargains?

When you're facing a criminal charge, one thing you should understand is what happens if you take a plea deal. Plea bargaining is a major part of the United States criminal justice system. It's there to help reduce the time and cost of a trial, to avoid publicity, to eliminate uncertainty about the case's outcome and to reduce the overall caseload of the court system.
