Reckless Homicide Attorney in Chicago

When Can You Be Charged with Reckless Homicide?

When the death of a person is caused by the operation of a motor vehicle by another, reckless homicide has been committed. It is an unintentional act. If the driver of the vehicle that killed another is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is presumed to be evidence of a reckless act unless it can be proven otherwise. Driving under the influence does not just mean that a person's BAC is 0.08% or higher. You could be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or a combination of both, which would render you incapable of safely driving a vehicle.

The laws concerning reckless homicide are lengthy and very detailed. A Chicago DUI lawyer will be able to review the exact circumstances in your case and answer any questions concerning the matter. It is important to retain an attorney with experience dealing with DUIs and reckless homicide charges. A defense strategy will have to be outlined in order to secure a favorable result.

An Effective Defense for Your Future

Your future and the future of your family and loved ones are at risk. Do not put your case in the hands of an attorney who has little to no understanding of an effective DUI defense. In an effort to lower the occurrences of DUI offenses, prosecutors will actively fight to maximize the penalties against you. You will need a lawyer that is capable of obtaining a successful outcome, so contacting Attorney Sarah Toney can help guide you through the complex legal system.
