How much time in jail do you get for manslaughter?
It depends on the country you're tried in. It also depends on the judge and the circumstances surrounding the death.
That depends greatly on the situation and the laws involved. In most cases committing murder will result in jail time. There are some situations, such as self defense, where jail time may not be a result of the death. Some instances of manslaughter are not punished with jail time, though they could be.
Yes. Homicide is the broad spectrum that includes all crimes that involve killing another person. Most states include: murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, and negligent homicide. There are normally also some other crimes included under the umbrella, such as vehicular homicide. It would be very rare for a person to be convicted of any homicide crime and not be sentenced to any jail time.
