Manslaughter is a legal term for the killing of another human being without premeditation or deliberation. The punishment for manslaughter is substantially less than life in prison or the death penalty.
Murder is a form of homicide that is described as an intentional killing of another person. In California, there are two degrees of murder recognized by the law:
Domestic violence is the use of physical violence, the threat of violence, or harmful psychological or emotional tactics against another individual in a person’s family. Domestic violence can be a misdemeanor or felony offense, depending on the nature of the crime and the presence or absence of physical injuries to the witness/victim. If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony domestic violence offense, contact Criminal Defense Attorney Shaun Khojayan. Domestic violence would also have immigration consequences for non-citizens. This Firm will defend you aggressively against domestic violence accusations like we do for all crimes that our clients are accused.
Assault and Battery
Assault and battery charges may be misdemeanor or felony offenses, depending on the severity of the crime and resulting injuries. Assault is the attempt to cause bodily injury to another individual. Unless it involves a law enforcement officer, assault is most likely a misdemeanor. Aggravated assault involves the use of a deadly weapon and thus most likely a felony. Battery is the actual contact and/or injury inflicted on another individual with the intent to cause bodily harm. There are a number of defenses including self-defense that this Firm can aggressively present in your case to defend you against such charges.
Kidnapping and Child Abduction
Kidnapping can subject the accused to a life term in prison, or at a minimum, a long prison sentence. Shaun Khojayan and his Firm can assist you and your loved one in defending against such charges through thorough investigation and appropriate motions.
