Man charged for killing 3 in alleged drunk driving crash

It goes without saying that drunk driving in Louisiana is a dangerous proposition. The penalties for being pulled over, arrested, charged and convicted of drunk driving are quite severe. However, if people are injured or killed as a result of a drunk driving accident, the possible penalties can be considerably more severe.

Earlier this month in Lafayette Parish, three people were killed when a car that had been attempting to pass a vehicle struck another vehicle in the opposite lane of traffic. Three people in that car were killed in the wreck, and police suspect the driver of the first vehicle was under the influence at the time of the crash.

The driver of the car that was attempting to pass, a 58-year-old man from Duson, faces several charges, including three counts of vehicular homicide. In addition, one of the passengers who died, a 16-year-old girl, was pregnant. The unborn fetus also did not survive, and so the driver was also charged with third-degree feticide.

Because of the heavy toll this accident has taken, any proceedings in the case are likely to be emotionally charged. Even though the allegations in this case are severe and serious, the man who has been charged has the right to defend himself in court.

No matter how serious a particular charge or set of charges might be, someone who is facing them has the right to defend himself in court. Drunk driving and vehicular homicide charges are serious enough that a person in this situation may need an experienced criminal defense attorney to work on his behalf.
