Accused of Vehicular Manslaughter in Fort Myers?
Vehicular manslaughter is a serious criminal offense that may be charged as a second degree felony, punishable by up to 12 years in state prison and a fine of up to $10,000. To be charged with this offense, the prosecution does not need to prove that you intentionally caused another person’s death – only that the manner in which you were operating the vehicle was reckless and was likely to result in serious bodily injury or death to another.
