Manslaughter may be one of the most complex violent criminal charges to understand. It is portrayed on television shows as being a lenient alternative to murder, which truly misrepresents how severe the penalties can be for manslaughter. Attorneys would agree that while it is a form of homicide considered less serious than murder, it carries with it minimum jail time for a conviction. New York manslaughter penalties include jail time, probation, parole, loss of the right to be bonded, restitution, counseling and significant fines.
