If you are facing charges of vehicular or involuntary manslaughter, you are going to need a proven Overland Park DUI attorney who is intimately familiar with DUI laws and how to effectively defend against such charges. As opposed to most criminal defense firms, the Neighbors Law Office concentrates almost solely on DUI offenses, working with these matters on a daily basis.
Involuntary manslaughter involves the use of drugs or alcohol while driving a vehicle which caused a fatality. The prosecution must show that you displayed a reckless disregard for the safety of others in order for you to be found guilty.
This is a serious felony DUI offense with penalties that include a minimum of two and one-half years in prison. In some cases, a person found guilty of this crime can be imprisoned for 11 years. The foundation of this crime is that a person knew their actions were dangerous but acted in spite of this. A pedestrian, a passenger in your vehicle or someone in another car can all be a victim of involuntary manslaughter.
In defending DUI manslaughter cases, I have found that aggressively attacking the presumption that drugs or alcohol were the key factor in the case can produce the most favorable results. When the DUI part of the case is successfully defeated, it can result in the severity of the crime being lessened or the charges being reduced to a misdemeanor.
I want you to have the best defense possible as the final consequences can be devastating to you and your family. Throughout your case you will be informed and educated, so that you understand the tactics I am using and what can be achieved on your behalf.
