Vehicular Homicide

If a person is in a vehicle and driving in a reckless or malicious manner and causes an incident in which another individual is killed, he or she may face charges of vehicular homicide or vehicular manslaughter. Most of the country’s states, including Texas, have statues that specifically address incidents where vehicles are involved in crimes where a person is killed. In most cases, particularly where malicious intent is clear, the court can treat the motor vehicle as a deadly weapon, just as they would a gun or knife.

When a person is convicted of vehicular homicide or manslaughter, he or she faces extremely serious punishment possibilities. If you have been charged with vehicular homicide, it is very important that you are represented by a good defense attorney who will fight to protect your rights. Contact the experienced Houston criminal defense lawyers of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C. to explore your legal options.

Vehicular Homicide and Impaired Driving

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can greatly increase the possibility of a person being involved in a situation where he or she may face vehicular homicide charges. Before getting behind the wheel, it is important to remember that:

  • Intoxication can never be used as a full defense in a vehicular homicide case (or any case, generally).
