Criminal law: Man facing vehicular homicide charges in Minnesota

When faced with criminal charges, it is prudent to find out more information about those charges. Criminal law can be a complicated area to navigate, but individuals do have options for seeking assistance and gaining more insight into their predicaments. One man in Minnesota may be hoping to find out more information after recently being charged with vehicular homicide. 

Reports stated that the man was driving a vehicle in a residential area at approximately 9:30 p.m. While traveling, the man's vehicle reportedly struck another vehicle before striking an individual who was on a sidewalk. The pedestrian was purportedly thrown over 100 feet from where he had been standing. The driver of the vehicle allegedly did not remain on the scene of the accident.

Police reportedly followed a trail from the accident site to another residence and located the man inside. He purportedly smelled of alcohol and had cuts to his face that authorities suspected to have come from the accident. As a result, the man was taken into custody, and he is currently facing charges for criminal vehicular homicide and involvement in a traffic collision. Reports stated that his bail was set at $300,000.

The charges that have been brought against this Minnesota man could have severe consequences if he is convicted. Therefore, it is likely that he will want to work toward a better outcome for himself. Gathering information on the charges leveled against him may prove useful, and he may also wish to discuss his case with his legal counsel in order to gain more specific knowledge on the criminal law elements surrounding his case.
