The defendant's attorney tells McCoy that her client will plead guilty to first degree manslaughter if he gets a sentence of 2-6 years in prison. However an experienced criminal attorney should know that as a violent class B felony manslaughter one carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison. It would be unlawful for someone to be sentenced to a minimum term of two years in prison for manslaughter one; in fact even if the defendant plead guilty to second degree manslaughter he still couldn't get a minimum of two years as that is a violent class C felony with a minimum sentence of 3-1/2 years.
The only homicide charges that could get a minimum sentence of under three years are vehicular manslaughter in the second degree (a class D felony with a sentence of 2-7 years) and criminally negligent homicide (a class E felony with a sentence of 1-4 years). See more
