South Carolina is different than most other states in the way that they define murder charges. In some states, you have different degrees of murder, such as first degree and second degree. In our state, there is only one definition. Anyone who kills someone else, whether intentional or not, can be charged with murder. There are a number of things the court will look at during your case, however, such as your intentions and how you value human life to determine the severity of the potential punishment.
Manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter are lesser charges, but still have to do with the taking of someone’s life. Understandably, this can be difficult to understand. As your lawyer, Mr. Richardson can explain these categorizations, and how they impact your case.
