Avoiding a Felony Conviction

Under the Connecticut Penal Code Sec. 53a-56b, manslaughter in the second degree with motor vehicle is considered to be a Class C felony. In order to be found guilty of this charge, the prosecution must be able to prove that you were doing one of the following which caused the death of another person:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol
  • Driving under the influence of a drug
  • Or both

Ultimately, if you caused the accident which resulted in loss of life and they find any illegal substance in your blood, then you could be at risk of being charged with vehicular manslaughter.

Misconduct With a Motor Vehicle

In Connecticut you can also be charged with misconduct with a motor vehicle which is categorized as a Class D felony. This crime entails criminal negligence in the operation of the motor vehicle which ultimately leads to someone else's death. For more information on these penal code offenses, be sure to get in touch with a criminal lawyer at our firm today.

A typical punishment for this crime includes a one year license suspension and a two year requirement of installing an ignition interlock device in your vehicle.
