Re: Intent of Attack

Quote from Sunny: But manslaughter is still a punishable *offense*, even if the same action with intention is worse.

When there is no intent and it was fully accidental, it is called "death by misadventure" and is not punishable. Such a call is made by the coroner in most jurisdictions.
