Voluntary manslaughter is a form of homicide that does not involve premeditation. Sometimes referred to as a crime committed in the heat of the moment, it can carry very significant penalties that can result in the significant loss of your freedom. This can be especially harsh, if the act was committed with a weapon.
In a situation like this, you should consider calling 801-722-8918 to retain the services of Dennis Pawelek and the legal associated at Pawelek Law, PLLC in Provo, Utah.
