Lesser Included Offense
A lesser crime whose elements are encompassed by a greater crime. A lesser included offense shares some, but not all, of the elements of a greater criminal offense. Therefore, the greater offense cannot be committed without also committing the lesser offense. For example manslaughter is a lesser included offense of murder. Although the offenses can be charged together, the accused cannot be found guilty of both offenses because they are both parts of the same crime because the lesser offense is part of the greater offense.
