If a person causes the death of another person due to their careless or reckless driving, they may be charged with vehicular manslaughter. Also referred to as vehicular homicide, these extremely serious charges expose a person to the possibility of spending time in prison if convicted.

An Overview of Vehicular Homicide
Even though a driver may have never intended to harm another person, they can still face harsh consequences if the courts find their actions to be considered reckless. Reckless driving is defined as any conscious disregard of substantial risk. This can include driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI/DWI) or falling asleep at the wheel.
A conviction can bring the following penalties:
- A second degree felony on a person’s record
- Up to 10 years in state prison
- Fines up to $150,000
- Driver’s license suspension from 5 years to life
If the fatal collision occurred within a school zone, the penalties can worsen by up to an additional 10 years in prison, along with a first degree felony charge. Since death by auto charges carry such extreme consequences, retaining a hard-hitting defense is crucial. By consulting with my firm, I can review the specifics of your case and craft a custom strategy to give you the best chances of securing a desirable verdict.

A vehicular manslaughter charge can derail a person’s life in an instant. This can happen to anyone, and it is not uncommon for this type of offense to be someone’s first brush with the law.
