Vehicular Manslaughter

Were You Arrested for Vehicular Manslaughter in Chicago or Cook County?

Vehicular manslaughter is a very serious offense that could have you facing up to 10 years in prison. According to Illinois law, if you unintentionally cause an accident that results in the death of another person, then you may be charged with vehicular manslaughter. This is considered a homicide offense in Illinois. Negligent drunk driving or reckless behavior while intoxicated is one of the leading reasons that prosecutors charge defendants with vehicular manslaughter. After an accident, if it is found that your blood alcohol content was 0.08% or higher, you will be charged with vehicular manslaughter. Even if you were under the influence of drugs at the time of your accident, you may still be charged with this crime.

If you were arrested for vehicular manslaughter, then you were probably charged with a felony offense, punishable by up to 10 years in prison. You may also be facing steep fines, restitution to the victim, and the possibility of facing a wrongful death charge as well. If you have been arrested, then it is vital that you act quickly to retain aggressive legal counsel. Your rights, freedoms, and future may be in danger.
