Vehicular Homicide Penalties
The California crime of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated requires that you are driving while under the influence, that you committed an additional act with gross negligence such as speeding, and that this negligence caused the death of another. This is a serious criminal charge that can carry significant and long-lasting penalties for conviction. This criminal offense is a felony that carries up to ten years in prison, or up to life imprisonment depending on your criminal record.
In addition, you will face up to $10,000 in fines, restitution to the victim, driver's license suspension, California DUI School, community service hours, and others. It is vital to recognize the other repercussions that you will face such as car insurance penalties, and the fact that you will have a felony on your record. This could result in a denial of housing, employment, bank loans, and other benefits that require a background check.
