Driver Faces 10 Years for Deadly DUI Crash

A Ladera Ranch man could spend the next 10 years in prison if he found guilty of the vehicular manslaughter charges he faces.

Richard Ernest Caselli, 37, was charged with vehicular manslaughter following an October 2009 accident that left a woman dead. Prosecutors say Caselli was driving more than 100 mph on the 73 toll road just north of Laguna Canyon Road when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into an SUV being driven by Brook Boynton. Boynton, who was ejected from her vehicle, died in the accident.

In addition to speeding excessively, authorities also said Caselli showed signs of intoxication, including bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and the scent of alcohol on the breath.

Caselli is scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow. If he is ultimately convicted of vehicle manslaughter with gross negligence while intoxicated he will face a maximum of 10 years in prison. For now, he is out on $150,000 bal.

Responsible for Causing an Orange County DUI Accident?

An experienced Orange County DUI attorney at the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry can provide you with the aggressive and committed defense representation you need following a fatal accident. DUI is a serious offense in and of itself, but when you factor in excessive speeding and causing an accident, you will certainly face enhanced penalties and charges. Vehicular manslaughter in connection with DUI is one of the most serious offenses a driver can commit, and any driver found guilty of causing a deadly DUI accident will face many years in state prison, huge fines, restitution to the victim's family, and more.

When faced with life-altering charges, such as vehicular manslaughter, you need an attorney on your side who knows what they're doing and has experience defending clients against the toughest of all DUI charges. As one of Orange County's leading DUI defense firms, you can trust your case is in good hands at the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry.

Contact the office today to schedule an appointment to discuss your case with an experienced and resourceful Orange County DUI lawyer.
