Negligent homicide, also referred to as involuntary manslaughter, and vehicular manslaughter, also referred to as automobile homicide, are the primary charges filed in connection with fatal accidents that are suspected to be DUI-related.
Negligent homicide is a class A misdemeanor offense, and can result in penalties of up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500. Vehicular manslaughter or automobile homicide is a third-degree felony offense, and can result in penalties of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. A second such offense is a second-degree felony, and can result in penalties of up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
Although these charges are most commonly associated with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they can also be charged in connection with careless driving, speeding, texting, eating, talking on a cell phone, and other gross negligence while driving.
