Vehicular Manslaughter in Chico
Vehicular manslaughter is an extremely serious charge.
Drivers who are responsible for the deaths of passengers, occupants of other cars, or pedestrians, may find themselves charged with the crime of vehicular manslaughter. Whether the driver was sober or intoxicated, the consequences of being found guilty of vehicular manslaughter are steep.
If the driver is convicted of being intoxicated, the vehicular manslaughter punishment could be up to ten years years in prison. If the driver has one or more DUI related convictions on record, punishment could be 15 years, to life, in prison.
Each state defines Vehicle Manslaughter in specific ways, but ultimately the charge should never be taken lightly, particularly in California, where our drivers face some of the most severe punishments in the country.
As with most traffic accidents, the circumstances are not always simple. While law enforcement officers are quick to blame the intoxicated party, defense attorneys know that there could be many factors that contributed to the accident.
