Vehicular Homicide under Florida Law
Vehicular Homicide is a second degree felony punishable by a maximum sentence of fifteen years in Florida State Prison, and a $10,000.00 fine. This offense may be enhanced to a first degree felony punishable by thirty years in prison if the driver willfully left the scene of an accident.
Vehicular Manslaughter under Florida Law
Under Florida Statute § 782.071, vehicular manslaughter is an accusation that a driver killed another human being by operating a motor vehicle in a reckless manner likely to cause death or great bodily harm to another. To prosecute a vehicular manslaughter charge, the state does not need to prove that the driver had the intent to harm anyone, but instead, that the operation of the vehicle was in a manner likely to cause the death or great bodily injury of another.
