Not Guilty in Manslaughter Trial
Client was charged with Manslaughter for the death of a passenger after a rollover accident in the off road vehicle Client had been driving. The police believed alcohol and reckless driving caused the accident and death.
The State alleged the Manslaughter was a "Dangerous Offense" because the vehicle was a "Dangerous Instrument" capable of causing death or serious injury. If Client had been convicted of Manslaughter as a "Dangerous Offense" he would have had to serve a prison sentence of anywhere between seven (7) to twenty-one (21) years.
Instead, after trial, the Jury found Client Not Guilty.
