Orange County Vehicular Manslaughter Lawyer

Criminal Charges for Fatal DUI Accidents in California

Any DUI accident has the potential to cause a driver to face serious criminal charges, but if someone loses their life in the accident this is the most serious of drunk driving-related charges one may face in California. At the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry, we understand how to deal with these complex cases. Vehicular manslaughter is an offense for which a defendant will need the most aggressive and experienced criminal defense counsel possible.

Orange County DUI attorney Virginia Landry has extensive experience in assisting clients in the face of all types of misdemeanor and felony DUI (driving under the influence) charges, and she is ready to put her knowledge to work for you. If you or someone you know has been accused of vehicular manslaughter, you will need legal counsel immediately. You are at risk of facing years of imprisonment in a California state prison if you are convicted, as well as suffering the serious consequences of having a "strike" on your criminal record under California's Three Strike Law, defined as "habitual offenders" in the California Penal Code §667.7. With proper representation by an experienced DUI defense lawyer, however, you have the extremely valuable opportunity of avoiding a conviction altogether - or at the very least facing lesser charges and penalties.

Penalties for DUI Manslaughter

If convicted of DUI manslaughter in Orange County, California, a defendant may face the following penalties:

  • Vehicular Manslaughter While Intoxicated, with Gross Negligence: up to 1 year in jail, or up to 4, 6 or 10 years in prison.
  • Vehicular Manslaughter While Intoxicated: up to 1 year in county jail, or up to 16 months, 2 years or 4 years in state prison.

Specific penalties may vary depending on the particular circumstances of the accident, the defendant's past criminal record, and more.
