We generally think of manslaughter and assault or aggravated assault as crimes that are committed against an individual with a deadly weapon such as a gun or knife. It is true that a deadly weapon is required as an element, however in the state of Arizona, a vehicle may be considered as a deadly weapon for the purposes of this criminal charge. The penalties for conviction of this crime can be very serious, and when alcohol is involved then the penalties for conviction are even more severe.

Vehicular manslaughter occurs when an individual is killed in an accident due to the negligence of another, and aggravated assault can occur if an individual is injured in an accident due to the negligence of another. Conviction of these criminal charges can result in very serious penalties. These crimes are generally charged as misdemeanors, however if alcohol is involved then you could be charged with a felony. The penalties for conviction of a felony in this case will incur a seven- to 21-year prison sentence as well as other penalties.
