Penalties for DUI Manslaughter

In Georgia, involuntary manslaughter is defined as the killing of another human being without the intent to do so but usually due to a criminal or negligent act. Vehicular manslaughter is a form of involuntary manslaughter where the reckless driving of an automobile directly caused the death of another person, and it is often considered a misdemeanor. DUI manslaughter is escalated to a felony in most cases due to the inherently dangerous and illegal behavior of driving under the influence.

If you are convicted of a DUI manslaughter felony charge, you could face:

  • 1 to 15 years in prison
  • Thousands of dollars in fines
  • Revocation of driver's license
  • Forced restitution to decedent's family
  • Probation and ignition interlock device installation
  • Loss of job opportunities due to felony record

Burden of Proof in Criminal Cases

Every person has the right to be represented by a legal expert in court, no matter how serious their charges are. The burden of proof lies on the prosecution, and they must show beyond a reasonable doubt that your DUI manslaughter charges are fitting and that you are personally responsible for the death of another person. At Balbo & Gregg, we think outside of the box to create defenses that shield our clients and keep the criminal justice system in check.

Defensive arguments and strategies we may be able to implement include:

  • Your driving should not be considered reckless.
  • Driving of decedent should be considered reckless.
  • Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level not high enough to constitute intoxication.
  • BAC level misread by testing.

Our criminal defense attorneys are proud residents of the Hinesville and Hinesville communities. We are passionate about our craft and will prove that by vigorously fighting for you in court. We believe that no one is guilty until they have had a fair trial. We will use our experience as former prosecutors to dodge the strategies we know you will face in court.
