My friends son and his best friend who are both 17 got ahold of a gun and while handing the gun over to each other it went off and shot one of the boys and he died. Now my friends son is facing involuntary manslaughter charges. He's only 17 with no previous criminal record.
How long would he serve and will have to serve this in prison or in juvenile detention ?
Penal Code section 192(b) is a minimum of two years, maximum of four years. He may get probation and it may be handled in the juvenile system. I'm not sure what happened was a crime. There was no criminal mental state.
Modesto, you've posted NUMEROUS questions about this manslaughter case. Suggest you meet in person with a local criminal defense attorney. You can't resolve everything online.
