    So let me get this straight. A guy commits a legal act w/o due caution of the possibility of death. As a result, the health inspector dies. In that case, he is charged with Involuntary Manslaughter. The maximum sentence on that charge is 8 years imprisonment and/or a fine of an indefinite amount. However, states might have separate manslaughter laws that he is being charged with instead of the federal one. In that case, tell me the state.

    18 USC 1112 (Manslaughter)

    (a) Manslaughter is the unlawful killing of a human being without malice. It is of two kinds:

    Voluntary—Upon a sudden quarrel or heat of passion.

    Involuntary—In the commission of an unlawful act not amounting to a felony, or in the commission in an unlawful manner, or without due caution and circumspection, of a lawful act which might produce death.

    (b) Within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States,

    Whoever is guilty of voluntary manslaughter, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both;

    Whoever is guilty of involuntary manslaughter, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both.

    This is called involuntary manslaughter. The most one's sentence would be for such a crime would be 15 years.
