What Is Vehicular Manslaughter in Boise?

Vehicular manslaughter, according to Idaho law, occurs when someone causes the death of another person without malice. There are various forms, including vehicular manslaughter. Vehicular manslaughter refers to the operation of a vehicle as a significant cause of the death of another because of: 

  • Driving recklessly or aggressively
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving with gross negligence for the safety of others 

There are several careless driving acts that can bring on a vehicular manslaughter charge. The primary type involves negligent driving that leads to another’s death. A minor act of careless driving may lead to a charge of simple negligence, while you may be charged with gross negligence if it is found that you were flagrantly showing off with dangerous driving tactics. 

Being under the influence is another careless driving act that comes with severe consequences when vehicular manslaughter is involved. Driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or higher is considered impaired in Idaho. Vehicular homicide with DUI or aggravated DUI is a felony and you risk years of jail time and heavy fines. 

Penalties for Vehicular Manslaughter in Boise 

Vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence is considered a misdemeanor. A conviction under this category can lead to jail time of up to one year, fines of up to $2,000, or both. Regular or ordinary negligence refers to conduct where there is a failure to act with reasonable care in a particular instance as compared to an ordinary person. 

Gross negligence is the deliberate act of recklessness towards the safety of others, which causes harm. The degree of care is what differentiates gross negligence from its lesser counterpart. Penalties for Boise drivers that fall into this category are much harsher. You risk facing up to ten years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.

How to Defend Against Boise Vehicular Manslaughter Charges

The preparation involved to build a defense against vehicular manslaughter charges is extensive. Due to the severity of the penalties, we leave no stone unturned in investigating the details of your individual case. No two cases are the same, and we never treat them as such. We have extensive experience in DUI cases and criminal defense preparation. 

The details of your defense will depend on the details of your case. For example, if you’re accused of driving under the influence and causing a fatal accident, your attorney may gather evidence proving you weren’t driving drunk at the time, which may help prove you weren’t engaging in dangerously negligent behavior. 

Additionally, your Boise manslaughter attorney may try to reduce the penalties you’ll face by reducing accusations of gross negligence to simple negligence. Reducing the charges can help you avoid much longer sentences and harsher penalties.
