Maryland DUI Manslaughter & Homicide Attorneys

Call (301) 321-7277 for Tough Representation If You've Been Arrested for Causing a Fatal Accident

Driving under the influence carries incredibly serious penalties which are only magnified to a higher level when the accident involves a fatality. DUI fatalities tend to receive a lot of attention from the media, and though each defendant is innocent until proven guilty, the court of public opinion is usually on the victim’s side.

Whenever the loss of life is involved in a criminal setting, the emotions and stakes are extremely high. Acquiring the services of an experienced defense attorney can help to insure that your rights are protected under the law and that you mount a competent, compelling defense against your DUI homicide charges.

Call a Maryland DUI manslaughter & homicide lawyer at (301) 321-7277 for aggressive defense.

Penalties for Negligent Homicide Involving Drugs or Alcohol

Maryland takes a very strict stance on drunk driving or driving while impaired, so DUI homicide is automatically charged as a felony offense. The severity of penalties you may be facing will be determined in large part by your BAC level and the amount and/or types of drugs in your system.

  • Drunk driving vehicular homicide: Penalties for a first-time DUI homicide offense can include up to 5 years in prison and/or a maximum fine of $5000 and up to 10 years and/or a $10,000 fine for a second offense.
  • Drugged driving vehicular homicide: First-time offenders may be looking at three years in prison and/or a maximum fine of $5,000, while repeat offenders may face a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Finding a lawyer that understands the needs of your vehicular manslaughter case is essential to mounting an effective defense, such as whether or not it's in your best interest to accept a plea bargain or take the case to trial.

Alpert Schreyer Poe's legal team has had great success reducing or eliminating charges altogether for our clients in hundreds of DWI/DUI cases.
