Facing a vehicular homicide charge in Maryland is an emotionally overwhelming experience.

The Difference Between Vehicular Homicide & Vehicular Manslaughter

According to Maryland law, vehicular manslaughter is defined as causing the death of someone else while operating a vehicle in a “grossly negligent” manner. There is also a lesser charge called criminally negligent manslaughter, which is a lesser charge compared to the former. The main difference between the two is that vehicular manslaughter means the defendant was allegedly aware of his/her negligent conduct, while criminally negligent manslaughter means that the defendant wasn’t aware his/her conduct created a significant risk to another person’s life.

On the other hand, vehicular homicide involves driving while intoxicated by alcohol or drugs. Vehicular homicide while under the influence of alcohol is a felony offense, which carries a prison sentence of up to five years and/or a fine not exceeding $5,000. Vehicular homicide while intoxicated by drugs or a combination of drugs and alcohol is also a felony, punishable by a maximum three-year prison sentence and/or a fine no more than $5,000.
