Harrisburg Homicide by Vehicle Defense
Vehicular Homicide | Negligent Homicide | Texting While Driving | DUI Related Deaths
In today’s world, where there are more distractions for drivers, the perceived increase in vehicle-related deaths caused by such activities as texting, talking on the phone, or adjusting an MP3 player or satellite radio has led to increased penalties for homicides involving a motor vehicle. In Pennsylvania, you can be charged with homicide by vehicle if you engage in recklessness or gross negligence while behind the wheel of a car or truck and cause the death of another person, including a passenger in your car. You could face a mandatory sentence of three years if convicted. You want an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect your constitutional rights.
