Drug crimes and alcohol related crimes happen with alarming frequency. Unfortunately, drugs and alcohol, when paired with driving, can lead to vehicular manslaughter (killing someone while on drugs or under the influence of alcohol). In California if you get convicted for a DUI offense you will be told that if you should drink and drive again and kill someone you could be prosecuted for second degree murder which would result in a prison sentence of 25 years to life. The Lawyers at Fountain & Hattersley have defended such cases since prosecutors are now very serious about filing such charges.
If you are arrested for a crime related to drugs (possession or trafficking) or alcohol (drunk driving-DWI-DUI), you face time in jail, a permanent mark on your criminal record, high fines and restitution, and loss of driving privileges.
The criminal defense attorneys at Fountain & Hattersley in Pasadena can provide you with an aggressive defense for vehicular manslaughter or other offenses related to drugs or alcohol. Your defense team will consist of a former prosecutor with more than 30 years of experience, including extensive experience defending individuals against charges related to drugs or alcohol.
Our past prosecutorial experience allows us to anticipate what the prosecution will do and use that information to build your defense or negotiate a favorable plea offer. Whether in the courtroom or during plea negotiations, we will give you the information you need to make an informed decision about how to proceed.
