Bowie Vehicular Homicide Attorneys
Vehicular Homicide Information
Vehicular homicide charges in Maryland are very serious. They are murder charges and are often charged as felonies. If the prosecutors in your case believe you were operating a vehicle or vessel in a grossly negligent manner, you face up to 15 years in prison as well as a fine of up to $5,000. Those charged with vehicular homicide under the influence or impaired by drugs or alcohol face the same fine, plus three to five years of prison. Those are in addition to any other criminal charges stemming from a serious accident.
If you're facing vehicular homicide charges, its important to get competent, assertive legal representation as quickly as possible.
