Defense of Motor Vehicle Felonies in Southwest Ohio
If you are facing charges such as vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, or any other felony offense related to drunk driving allegations or unlawful operation of a motor vehicle, contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer at the Cincinnati law firm of Michael K. Allen & Associates.
Under certain circumstances, such as unlawful blood alcohol concentration or fleeing a police officer, fatal or serious injury accidents that would otherwise be treated as noncriminal negligence can be charged as felony vehicular offenses, including homicide and assault. Because the question of the defendant's intent is usually the critical issue in vehicular felony cases, we develop and present your defense with a view toward the broader circumstances of the case, so that a homicide charge might be resolved as not guilty.
These distinctions can make all the difference in your exposure to punishment and the possibility of a suspended sentence as opposed to years in prison. As the former elected Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney, Mike Allen is highly familiar with the evidentiary challenges that the government must overcome in order to prove every essential fact of its case beyond a reasonable doubt against the defendant. His experience at trial can help ensure that those facts that cast doubt on any part of the government's case will be highlighted for the jury's full consideration, if a trial turns out to be necessary to satisfactorily resolve the case.
Felony charges such as vehicular homicide, aggravated vehicular manslaughter, or vehicular assault can result from accidents involving any one or more of the following circumstances:
- Drunk driving charges such as OVI or DUI
- Reckless driving
- Eluding a law enforcement officer
- Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle
- Driving on a suspended license
- Operating an illegally modified vehicle
- Racing on the street or highway
No matter how strong the government's case against you might be, the advice and representation of an experienced defense lawyer can make a significant difference in the resolution of your case.
