A young girl is may spend years in jail for accidentally killing her best friend in a car accident. She is scheduled back in court next month. The suspect, 18-year-old C.G., was riding with her friend Z.R., on a golf cart late at night. She had been drinking earlier in the evening and was found to be impaired when police arrived on the scene. The two were riding on a rural road when a vehicle came down the street and, unable to see them in the dark, struck them from behind.
C.G. was charged with vehicular manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, and driving under the influence (DUI). It is uncertain whether she has legal representation at this time. When you are accused of vehicular manslaughter, you need to seek legal counsel immediately as a conviction can result in years of jail time.
