Dungan & LeFevre represented a 35-year-old charged with voluntary manslaughter, a first-degree felony. If convicted, our client faced three to 11 years in prison, and fines up to $20,000.
He was accused of killing a man in a bar fight. The case went to a jury trial: the jury found that our client acted in self-defense. Even though the victim did die, our client was found not guilty.
Individual results may vary and depend on the facts, injuries, jurisdiction, venue, witnesses, parties, and other factors of each unique case.
