Involuntary manslaughter charges are hard to bear, because not only did you not intend to harm someone, but you're also facing penalties for doing so. You live with the guilt of your actions already, but the courts want to see you pay with your freedoms.
You were charged with a serious crime. After you entered a guilty plea or got convicted, you were fortunate enough to receive probation in lieu of prison time. While knowing you have a criminal record can be sobering and humbling, you likely feel fortunate that you've received a second chance. You want to follow the terms of your probation and move on with your life. Unfortunately, something goes awry.
A lot of factors can contribute to a serious motor vehicle accident. Both drivers may have made mistakes on the road. There could be weather issues or even medical conditions that contribute to a crash. While they are tragic, fatal crashes happen every day around the country and here in Tennessee. Sometimes, drivers also face driving under the influence (DUI) charges in addition to charges stemming from damages and injuries caused in the accident. If there was a fatality and you are also charged with a DUI, you could be facing very steep penalties for the accident.
