Strong Advocacy Against Vehicular Homicide Charges
Vehicular homicide is the crime of killing another person while operating a motor vehicle in a reckless fashion. Vehicular homicide charges are commonly filed in connection with DUI accidents, but are also brought against people who accidentally kill another person because they were speeding or otherwise driving recklessly and caused harm.
A person will also face vehicular homicide charges if they cause injury to a pregnant woman and consequently kill the fetus. If you are found guilty of vehicular homicide, you stand to face a number of serious penalties.
Vehicular homicide is usually tried as a first or second-degree felony, which means you could be sentenced to:
- 15 to 30 years in prison
- $10,000 in fines
- Restitution to the victim
- Community service
- Driver’s license suspension/revocation
- Points assessed to your driving record
