Being involved in a car accident is devastating enough, but for the accident to result in the death of another person brings a whole slew of problems, legal and otherwise. Vehicular homicide or manslaughter is a complex criminal charge that may be brought against drivers involved in a vehicular accident that caused the death of another person.
The specific charge and resulting penalties vary depending on the determination of who is at fault. Your situation will get more complicated if reckless behavior, alcohol and/or drugs are cited by the prosecutors to directly cause the accident.
In Minnesota, a vehicular manslaughter conviction will result in fines of up to $20,000 and a maximum prison sentence of ten years. If you’re caught in this unfortunate position, it’s important to get the services of a Minnesota vehicular homicide attorney who can assess your situation and carry out a solid defense that can get your charges reduced or dismissed.
