Convictions & Penalties

Gross vehicular homicide-murder while intoxicated can result in up to 10 years in prison; with a previous manslaughter conviction, you can get 15 years to life.

Conviction and penalties on the various charges of vehicular manslaughter or vehicular homicide-murder hinge on a number of questions:

  • What was the cause of the accident?
  • Were you driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent or more?
  • Did you display negligence? If so, was it gross negligence or ordinary negligence?
  • Did your negligence cause the death of another person?

Putting All Our Resources & Experiences to Work for You

Our criminal defense attorneys can fully investigate the case, interview witnesses, and consult accident reconstructionists and other experts. We work diligently to determine if factors other than your alleged negligence contributed to the accidental death. In negotiations with the district attorney, we seek to get the charges against you reduced or your case dismissed. We are ready to give you our effective legal advice about whether to resolve the case pre-trial or take it before a judge and jury.

Consult a former prosecutor about your defense. Start today!
