In Orange County, California, Joel Miranda, has been indicted on gross vehicular manslaughter charges for killing a pedestrian while driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. Miranda’s blood alcohol level was almost three times the legal limit, at 0.23%. Allegedly, Miranda fled the scene of the fatal crash. Miranda pleaded not guilty and his bail remains at one million dollars. The defendant has three prior DUI convictions.

Other similarly situated defendants have been charged with an elevated charge of second-degree murder. This recent case is yet another example of the wide discretion the District Attorneys allowed in deciding what charges to bring. As such, it is essential to retain an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. Your attorney will be able to contact the Prosecutor and attempt to influence what charges, if any, are filed against you.
