A Colorado Vehicular Homicide charge can lead to a felony conviction and a sentence to prison. While no one intends to cause an accident, when they happen and alcohol is involved, the consequences are severe.
Denver defense attorney Jay Tiftickjian understands how to defend vehicular homicide cases, as proven by his inclusion in another book about litigating DUI accident cases titled Defending DUI Vehicular Homicide Cases. This new book is an addition to the Inside the Minds legal collection by Aspatore.
