Van Nuys Vehicular Manslaughter Attorney
Criminal Defense Lawyer, San Fernando Valley
When a death occurs due to drunk driving, reckless driving, speeding, gross negligence or a hit and run you may be charged with the crime of vehicular manslaughter.
The crime may be charged either as a felony or a misdemeanor. If charged with a misdemeanor then you will be looking at up to 1 year in jail and if it is charged as a felony you could be facing an even longer term of up to ten years in a state prison. Additionally, you will also face large fines, probation, driver's license suspension, driving school and community service.
