Death of sleeping California woman leads to felony DWI charge

When a drunk driver causes the death of another person, the consequences will likely have a severe impact. Not only will driving privileges be adversely affected, but a conviction could result in many years in jail. The circumstances of every accident are different, and an attorney who focuses on defending those facing a DWI charge will focus on achieving an optimal result.

A 25-year-old California man is being held at the Lancaster Sheriff's Station on $1 million bail after he allegedly caused a woman's death when he was driving under the influence of alcohol. A preliminary report indicates that the suspected drunk driver was westbound on a street in a residential area on a recent Sunday. He apparently struck several parked vehicles before crashing into a house.

When Los Angeles County Fire Department responders arrived, they reportedly found that the pickup truck had landed on top of a bed in which a woman was sleeping. She was declared dead upon removal from beneath the vehicle. There were no other people in the house at the time.

The suspected drunk driver is now facing felony DWI and vehicular manslaughter charges. How and when a driver is accused of being under the influence of alcohol plays an important role in defending a DWI charge. An experienced DWI defense attorney will examine the details of the arrest procedures and other aspects in order to assess the charges and prepare a focused response. An accused drunk driver will have every reasonable opportunity to challenge the evidence presented by prosecutors in a California criminal court. Only upon proof of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt may a driver be convicted.
