Penalties for a Conviction
Proof of intent is not required to be convicted of motor vehicle homicide. However, if the accident was the result of reckless driving, negligent driving, or driving under the influence, you could be facing criminal charges. Although the death was accidental, you may be facing severe criminal penalties if you are convicted.
A motor vehicle homicide conviction may result in:
- A substantial prison sentence
- Large fines
- Community service
- Years of probation
- Loss of your driver’s license
Because the penalties can be so severe and conviction will impact the rest of your life, it is important to hire skilled legal representation.
