Sure, all you got to do is cop a plea, admit in open court with a court reporter present that you did what the DA said you did. Hay, I suspect that you are a grown boy; you are in the courtroom, you ought to have a lawyer, if you didn't nor dont it's because you did not really bother to even raise your voice, much less yell. (My personal opinion, is when in criminal situations, before the court and without a lawyer, to yell, and yell a's difficult in most states not to be legally represented by lawyers for felonies: of course, the accused has to do something: like show up for appointments, show up for court. Not being in court on an appointed date does not sit well with the mental condition of criminal judges in most states. Consider yourself lucky; voluntary manslaughter can carry a lot more punishment in most states. On the other hand: no trial, no lawyer, not court reporter, no bother to get real serious about the situation will do you in every time. And who says that there was no evidence? If iit's you still walking, you really need to get legal advice; retorical questions dont count for much in the sort of situation you are describing. Answer again: sure one can get two years for manslaughter, even if there is not evidence, and especially if the accused does not avail himself to the legal protections built into the system. Minor problem: this stuff does not do itself; the accused has to take some personal concern for the outcome.
