Vehicular Homicide is an extremely serious charge caused when someone is driving while intoxicated and as a result another is unintentionally killed. If you or someone you know has been arrested for vehicular homicide it is imperative you contact a Mason City criminal defense lawyer in Iowa to protect your constitutional rights.
The penalties for this crime if convicted are extremely harsh, with a mandatory prison sentence of 25 years. There is rarely any leniency for this crime. In addition, restitution to the victim’s family in the amount of $150,000 is also required. This is not a charge to take lightly; your future and freedom depend on how experienced and skilled your vehicular manslaughter defense attorney is.
