Intoxication Manslaughter Defense Lawyer
If your driving results in someone else’s death and the person’s death was caused by your negligence, you could be charged with vehicular manslaughter.
Manslaughter is a serious criminal offense that can lead to harsh legal consequences, including a substantial jail sentence.
An experienced manslaughter criminal defense lawyer can increase your chances of a favorable outcome.
To convict you of intoxication manslaughter, the prosecution must prove that you acted with ordinary negligence. This means that you did something that a reasonable person would not have done, or in the alternative, that you failed to do something that a good person would have done. The determination of what is reasonable is left to the jury and will depend on the individual facts of your case.
Whether you are charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter or more serious felony charges of vehicular manslaughter, you need to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. Depending on the circumstances of the crime and your criminal background, the charges can often be mitigated or even defeated.
