Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Negligent homicide is a criminal charge brought against people who, through criminal negligence, allow others to die.

Negligent Homicide is a lesser included offense to first and second degree murder, in the sense that someone guilty of this offense can expect a more lenient sentence, often with imprisonment time comparable to manslaughter. U.S. states all define negligent homicide by statute. In some, the offense includes the killing of another while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Examples of such cases include the crash of Aeroperu Flight 603 near Lima, Peru. The engineer who put the tape while cleaning the ill-fated Boeing 757 was convicted of negligent homicide after he forgot to take the masking tape (which was normally unused while cleaning airplanes) off.
