Get a San Diego DUI Defense Attorney on Your Side

Vehicular manslaughter is associated with DUI when a person unintentionally causes the death of another person while driving under the influence. When a person is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, it is presumed that they are acting negligent or reckless when behind the wheel. If an accident does occur, this individual will likely be blamed, regardless of who was actually at fault.

In most cases, vehicular manslaughter will be charged as a felony, which can carry up to four years in prison. There can also be enhanced penalties related to DUI.
