Everyone makes mistakes and sometimes those mistakes have horrible consequences. And if your mistake led to the loss of human life, there is nothing you can do to fully make amends. It may be hard to reconcile, but you will have to live with what happened, even if you never met anyone any harm.
If you have been charged with vehicular homicide, you are likely going through a whole range of emotions. You may be consumed with guilt about your involvement in the accident. And you are also likely very scared about what the future holds for you and your family.
During such a trying time, you may need to seek the support of your friends, family, clergy or mental health professionals. You should also bear in mind that no matter what happens, you can persevere and your life can have meaning. And perhaps most importantly of all, you can be kind to yourself.
There is no way to overstate the seriousness of vehicular homicide charges. And serious charges call for a strong defense strategy. The legal system has its criteria for deciding justice. However, it is up to the defendant and his or her representation to inform the court of all of the evidence related to the case.
And the court also should be cognizant of the type of person the defendant really is. After all, your one bad moment should not completely define you as a human being.
