Vehicular Manslaughter Giving You a Fighting Chance

RI Vehicular Manslaughter Lawyer

Representing Those Accused of Vehicular Manslaughter

Most of us understand that driving under the influence (DUI), whether it involves drugs or alcohol, is a serious criminal offense. Even for those who face charges for the first time and have never committed any other crimes or have a clean record face the minimum penalties. Drinking and driving has serious consequences and can lead to an accident, serious injury, and sadly, even the wrongful death of another.

If you have been charged with vehicular manslaughter, then you will need legal representation as soon as possible. We urge you to contact our RI vehicular manslaughter attorney Tom and his firm.

Vehicular Manslaughter Penalties in RI

Vehicular manslaughter is the crime of causing a fatal accident while operating a motor vehicle. When someone is killed in a car crash, law enforcement will investigate to determine whether someone was intoxicated or otherwise under the influence of either drugs or alcohol and caused the crash. This will have to be determined during the trial, where prosecutors will take the evidence and try to prove that the defendant is guilty.

If convicted, the defendant may face penalties such as:

  • Minimum 5 and up to 10 years in prison
  • Fines costing $5, 000 and up to $10, 000
  • License suspension for up to 5 years

Furthermore, you may have to pay restitution to the victim’s family if the case is brought to civil court. The family may exercise their right to receive financial compensation and take action against you. For these reasons, you should seek defense and retain a RI vehicualr manslaughter lawyer.
