We Create Real Solutions for People in Trouble
Factors that can lead to a first degree or felony charge of vehicular homicide are:
- Reckless Driving
- Unlawful Meeting or Overtaking of a School Bus
- Failing to Stop After a Collision or Hit & Run
- Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and/or Drugs
- Failing to Stop for, or Fleeing from, the Police
- Being Declared a Habitual Offender
In Georgia, the penalty for first-degree vehicular homicide includes 2 to 15 years in prison. If the accused is a habitual violator, a mandatory minimum of 1 year must be served in prison. Do what you can to avoid these harsh punishments. Do yourself and your family a favor by retaining the most experienced lawyers you can find. Too much is at stake to rely on an unproven, ill-prepared attorney right out of college, or who advertises heavily on television or online. Strong, effective criminal defense representation creating solutions for people in trouble—that is our mission every day at our firm.
