Charged with Vehicular Homicide? Let Us Defend Your Rights!

DUI manslaughter, also known as vehicular homicide, is an extremely serious charge.

You need an equally aggressive defense from our Colorado Springs DUI attorney who can contest the prosecution’s case against you. Not only will a person convicted of DUI vehicular homicide face years in prison, but their permanent criminal record could also affect their future.

You need to do everything you can to prevent a conviction. This starts by retaining the counsel and representation of our DUI defense firm. Call now for a free consultation!

How The Law Decides Whether Or Not You Were “Under The Influence”

According to Colorado Statute § 18-3-106, you could be convicted of vehicular homicide in Colorado Springs if you recklessly operated a motor vehicle, or while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and your conduct was the proximate cause of the death of another. All of these elements must be established. The law further explains how to determine whether or not you were “under the influence of alcohol.”

If your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was measured at .05% or less at the time of the accident, it will be presumed that you were not under the influence of alcohol. If your BAC was between .05 and .08%, this fact will be considered with other evidence to determine whether or not you were under the influence. If your BAC was at. 08% or greater, it will be presumed that you were under the influence.
