If you have been charged with involuntary manslaughter, the prosecution is alleging that your recklessness resulted in the accidental death of another. The penalties you are facing are significant, and could result in up to five years in a state penitentiary. Aggravating factors can increase potential penalties. For example, if the person who died because of your alleged recklessness was a peace officer, it is a Class 2 felony. If the death involved family or a household member, you could be facing up to 14 years in prison.
