No Jail Time in Manslaughter Case | Colorado Springs Criminal Defense Law Firm

According to the Gazette, a Colorado Springs man will avoid jail time after having been charged in the killing of his close friend. A fall down some stairs during a fight took the life of a 22-year-old man. The man’s mother has said that she forgives his friend, despite the fight, and did not support criminal charges in the case. A court order sealing the arrest affidavit makes it difficult to know much about what happened that night, other than the fact that one of the men died in the hospital a few days later while the other man was charged in connection with the death. The victim’s mother apparently believes that the tragic outcome was an accident. Under a plea agreement, the man will avoid jail time, serving a suspended sentence and probation, as long as he stays out of further legal trouble.
