Get Effective & Experienced Legal Representation on Your Side

Facing a vehicular homicide charge in Maryland is an emotionally overwhelming experience. Before you step foot inside the courtroom, you may appear to be guilty in the eyes of the public and the media. That is why it is important to have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side to protect your rights, reputation, and freedom throughout the legal process.

At The Law Office of Mark G. Scheuerman, LLC, we are committed to helping get the most favorable outcome in your case. Our legal team can investigate your arrest, collect and analyze evidence, and determine whether your constitutional rights were violated or if there are any weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case against you.

As a former prosecutor, Attorney Kenneth Grote has handled many vehicular homicide cases. He has an extensive understanding of how they are handled and what it takes to prove them, giving our clients a unique insight into both sides of the courtroom in order to provide them with an effective and personalized defense strategy.

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.

  • Excellent results - Highly recommended - would use again

    “Mark Scheuerman represented me for a traffic violation in Harford County. Facing 5 points, a large fine, plus living over 100 miles away from the incident court, I decided to hire an attorney to represent me. The cost of Mark's representation more than offset what I would have paid for increased auto insurance premiums for the years to come. Despite Harford being one of the toughest courts on traffic violations and a previous conviction on my record, Mark was able to get me probation before judgment (PBJ), which means zero points! My fine was also significantly reduced. Another huge plus was I didn't even need to attend my trial which prevented missing a full day off work and 200+ mile round trip. If I get another traffic violation in the Baltimore area I will definitely be calling again. Thanks.”
