Montville NJ Vehicular Homicide Charges
In the state of New Jersey, if someone has driven his or her vehicle recklessly and caused the death of another as a result, this accident may result in a conviction for criminal homicide. This offense is very serious and will result in significant prison time and a criminal record. Vehicular homicides are often complicated matters that have other charges closely intertwined such as a DWI, leaving the scene of an accident, or manslaughter.
In general, the crime of vehicular homicide is an offense of the second degree which carries a presumption of imprisonment and can result in 5 – 10 years of jail time. The crime gets escalated to a first degree felony if the fatal accident occurred while the defendant was driving drunk through a school crossing, or within 1,000 feet of school property. In addition, the individual will be required to forfeit the vehicle used in the commission of the crime. It is also important to note that a charge of vehicular homicide does not preclude the court from charging an individual with aggravated manslaughter or leaving the scene of the accident. A separate sentence shall be imposed upon each such conviction and those sentences will run consecutively. It is not a defense that individual did not know that death resulted from the accident nor that the accident was not the defendant’s fault.
