Murder and homicide are serious crimes that come with severe consequences if charges lead to conviction. In the State of Minnesota, stiff penalties for individuals convicted of murder or homicide can include lengthy prison sentences, hefty fines, and probation. When you work with Olson Defense, we thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your arrest and apply aggressive defense strategies to your case.
Murder and homicide crimes fall into varying categories:
- First degree murder
- Second degree murder
- Third degree murder
- First degree Manslaughter
- Second degree manslaughter
- Voluntary manslaughter
- Involuntary manslaughter
- Criminal vehicular homicide (CVO)
Manslaughter is defined as the crime of killing another person without premeditation and without prior planning. Voluntary manslaughter is when someone intentionally kills another person. Involuntary manslaughter occurs accidentally, such as when someone is recklessly driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and hits and kills a pedestrian.
