Defense Against Pennsylvania Vehicular Homicide Charges
Vehicular homicide (also called vehicular manslaughter) is the criminal charge a person faces if he or she unintentionally killed someone with a vehicle. The most common situation that can lead to a vehicular homicide charge is a car or truck accident caused by drinking and driving or driving under the influence of drugs.
The consequences of a criminal conviction for vehicular homicide are severe. You could face years of jail time, and/or large fines and loss of your driver's license.
