What is vehicular manslaughter?
A person can be charged with vehicular manslaughter when they are found
to have been legally intoxicated and operated a motor vehicle negligently
such that they caused an accident in which another person was killed.
Vehicular manslaughter can be charged as either a felony or misdemeanor
in North Carolina, depending on if you exhibited "gross negligence"
while driving intoxicated. Misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter carries
up to 1 year in jail while felony charges can bring between 16 months
to 4 years in prison. Regardless of the exact charge, your driver's
license will be suspended upon conviction.
