Criminal Defense: Reckless Homicide

Occasionally, albeit very rarely, police officers, sheriff’s deputies or state highway patrolmen will charge an Ohio driver with reckless homicide when he recklessly causes the death of another. If you have an Ohio DUI case or reckless homicide charge, you should consider talking to a top Ohio DUI lawyer to see if he can get the case dismissed or reduced to a lesser offense. The penalties on these pages only apply to drivers who are convicted of DUI/OVI or traffic related criminal offense. An experienced Ohio DUI lawyer may be able to prevent that from happening.

In Ohio, reckless homicide is a very serious criminal charge and a conviction brings the following potential penalties:

  • A prison sentence of up to 5 years
  • $10,000 in fines
  • Probation
  • A permanent criminal record
  • Loss of job
  • Liability in a civil lawsuit

Ohio Reckless Homicide is a Felony of the Third Degree

Unlike many other criminal offenses associated with driving a motor vehicle in Ohio, reckless homicide only has one level of offense, a felony of the third degree. To be charged of reckless homicide, a driver could conceivably face a situation where they caused the death of another while driving in a reckless manner, committed a reckless operation or drove in some other haphazard manner. Reckless homicide is a felony of the third degree with potential penalties of up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Common Mistakes in Ohio DUI/OVI Investigations

No Ohio DUI/OVI/drinking and driving arrest is perfect and the best Ohio DUI/OVI lawyers knows this. Most Ohio DUI/OVI investigations include a number of witnesses, including police officers and the personnel who collect, store and test chemical samples.  These witnesses are human and they make mistakes. Further, most Ohio DUI/OVI investigations include a breath testing device or other testing equipment that is not always maintained according to current Ohio DUI/OVI regulations.
