Short of first degree murder pretty much everything is probation eligible.

Manslaughter gets probation all day long. Even if not a first offense. I’ve seen second degree murder get probation. Obviously it’s up to the judge but you’re acting like this out of the ordinary and you know nothing about criminal law.

Your characterization of an unprovoked attack is one side of the story. Defendant is entitled to present his side of the case.
