A prosecution for culpable homicide is of course the most serious criminal proceeding in our system of criminal justice. Charges range from manslaughter to first degree murder and all carry a penalty on conviction of life imprisonment.

Vancouver criminal lawyer, Patrick Fagan, has successfully defended all forms of culpable homicide. In defending these most serious prosecutions success can take many forms – an outright verdict of not guilty at trial, a complete withdrawal of charges through pre-trial negotiation, a reduction in the charge and/or sentence and avoiding a prosecution in the first instance.
