Criminal Vehicular Homicide FAQ
Criminal Vehicular Homicide FAQ:
Criminal vehicular homicide is a serious charge. You need an attorney who will take the time to investigate and understand the incident, present your story in the right light, and fight to achieve your desire results.
What if the death had nothing to do with my driving?
If you’ve been charged, the state either has information you don’t know about, or they’re operating off bad information. The concept of reasonable doubt is great in theory, but it’s not something you can rely on. Don’t think they can’t prove something that’s not true. There is too much at stake. Fight for complete dismissal with facts.
What does the prosecution consider when charging?
When someone dies in an incident involving a vehicle, the state will consider whether any of the drivers were under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving negligently, or left the scene of an accident. If alcohol was involved, but the defendant’s blood-alcohol concentration was under the legal limit (.08%), the prosecution will still argue that their driving was impaired.
