Vehicular Manslaughter Can Send You to Prison
Vehicular manslaughter is a serious charge. If convicted, potential penalties include loss of your license, anger management classes, large fines and restitution, and mandatory prison time. To protect your future rights and freedom, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.
Attorney Sylvia A. Cavazos in San Antonio represents clients throughout south central Texas. She can defend you and protect your rights when you have been charged with causing someone’s death with your car. As a former assistant district attorney, she knows how the state prosecutes vehicular manslaughter cases.
The Knowledge to Find Weaknesses in the Case Against You
Vehicular manslaughter is recklessly causing someone’s death in an automobile accident due to reckless or grossly negligent driving, or intoxication. In Texas, vehicular manslaughter is likely to be called aggravated assault with a vehicle.
If the people in the other car, a pedestrian or cyclist, or a passenger in your car dies as the result of an accident caused by drunk driving, you will be charged with felony vehicular manslaughter.
Vehicular manslaughter charges are usually based on the police’s report of how you behaved immediately following the accident. As an experienced vehicular manslaughter lawyer, Ms. Cavazos will build a strong defense that highlights the weaknesses of the prosecution’s case, including any police error that infringed on your constitutional rights such as inaccurately conducting a field sobriety test.
