Are You Facing Charges of Vehicular Homicide in Minneapolis?
When an accidental death occurs, there are usually no penalties because there was no intent involved. However, if the accident was caused by someone who was drunk on alcohol or high on drugs, prosecutors and juries fail to realize that it was still an accident.
If you are facing charges of vehicular assault, vehicular homicide or aggravated charges, you need the help of an experienced criminal DWI defense attorney.
