Vehicular Manslaughter occurs when someone drives a vehicle in a reckless and unsafe manner ultimately resulting in the death of another person. Some forms of reckless driving include speeding, driving under the influence of either drugs or alcohol or both and driving in an unsafe and wanton manner.
In some circumstances, the offense can be filed as a felony if gross negligence is involved. Felonies are much more egregious than misdemeanor offenses and carry a much stiffer sentence. Other factors involved may include prior offenses or prior criminal record on the part of the defendant.
Other punishments associated with this offense include probation, parole, fines, jail or prison time and restitution to the victim and their families.
