Facing a Vehicular Manslaughter Charge in Southern California? Call Attorney Torrence Howell Now For Expert Legal HelpVehicular manslaughter is a very serious charge that applies when someone’s dangerous driving results in a death. It’s possible for someone to be driving properly, in a fully legal manner, and still drive in such a way that’s dangerous or negligent, so much so that it causes someone to die. Vehicular manslaughter can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, and potential penalties can vary widely, so if you’ve been arrested for vehicular manslaughter, it’s essential that you find a defense attorney who can help you navigate your case ASAP.

Potential penalties for vehicular manslaughter

If you’ve been charged with vehicular manslaughter, you’re probably wondering what penalties you’ll have to face if you are convicted. Penalties can vary widely depending on the facts of each vehicular manslaughter case.

For example, if you drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and cause an accident that kills someone, you may be charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. If you already have a DUI charge on your record from the past 10 years, you may be charged with second degree murder.

But penalties could be on the lighter side, too. If it’s a misdemeanor charge and you don’t have a previous criminal record, you might just get a year in jail. But if it’s a felony vehicular manslaughter charge, you could be facing 10 years in jail. If the charge is in addition to a DUI charge, your sentence could be 15 years to life.

The judge has a lot of leeway in determining your sentence. He or she may add requirements like DUI probation, victim restitution, community service, and license restrictions or suspensions to your sentence if you’re convicted of misdemeanor or felony vehicular manslaughter.
