Murder and Vehicular Manslaughter

We at Ghanayem and Rayasam, in our experience, have seen tragedies as well as injustices involving Murder and Vehicular Manslaughter cases.

Unfortunately the death of another can be caused in many ways, and when this tragic event happens, there is an immediate investigation and in many cases a rush to judgment. After the unnatural death of another, an investigation will determine if the death was accidental, self-inflicted or caused by another.

If the act is a Crime, it will fall into one of the following categories:

  • Murder
  • Felony Murder
  • Voluntary ManslaughterM
  • Involuntary Manslaughter
  • Vehicular Manslaughter

Murder

During a rush to judgment, Ghanayem and Rayasam have seen many incidents where a mass number of people have been “detained” as a result of a Murder investigation. In these cases, Ghanayem and Rayasam have seen innocent individuals talk themselves into a Murder arrest. The Police are trying to ascertain as much information as possible and are not looking out for the best interests of a "detainee." There is no crime of 2nd degree Murder in Georgia - the punishment for Murder is life without the possibility of parole or even the death penalty.

Voluntary Manslaughter, often referred to as a “crime of passion,” would otherwise be Murder unless there is such passion or provocation that a normal person would understand the accused’s actions. Voluntary Manslaughter is a very serious crime that carries a potential sentence of 1 to 20 years in prison.
