When facing vehicular manslaughter charges, you may feel like you're
in a horrible nightmare and that you should just plead guilty and throw
yourself on the mercy of the court. But don't do it.
The legal system is a complex entity and it is vitally-important that you
receive wise counsel from an attorney experienced with such important
cases to help you navigate through the proceedings, ensure that you receive
the very best defense and do everything possible to mitigate – lessen
the severity of – possible consequences of the charges.
Even if there are claims of surveillance video, eyewitness testimony or
physical evidence, you are innocent until proven guilty and it is crucial
that you protect your rights throughout every step of the process. Penalties
for conviction can be extremely severe, so it is imperative that you do
not delay in obtaining competent assistance.
As an example, according to news reports, the accused in a recent Pennsylvania
case benefitted greatly from the services of an experienced attorney when...
Charges for homicide by vehicle, homicide by vehicle while DUI and involuntary
manslaughter were reduced to misdemeanors after the defense's presentation
of an accident reconstruction expert convinced a police investigator that
his conclusion was wrong that only a person guilty of driving under the
influence could have caused the accident.
The defendant would never have had the opportunity to have those charges
reduced, if he hadn't had a highly-skilled defense attorney working for him.
While results such as this cannot be guaranteed, if you're facing the
potentially life-altering charge of
vehicular manslaughter in Temecula, Murrieta, Lake Elsinore, Wildomar, Menifee, Perris, Banning,
Hemet, Corona or Riverside, you owe it to yourself to do everything possible
to mount an effective defense – beginning with obtaining the services
of an experienced attorney.
