Florida Manslaughter Penalties
Manslaughter is a second degree felony in the state of Florida punishable by a maximum of 15 years in prison. Though Manslaughter does result in the death of another human being it is important to note the distinction between manslaughter and murder. Murder is the unlawful homicide of another with “malice aforethought” (i.e. the intention to kill or harm another). Manslaughter is an unlawful homicide with no prior intention to kill. The distinction of intent/lack of intent makes manslaughter a less serious felony charge than murder.
