Involuntary Manslaughter for Drunken Driver who was Texting
Posted on Feb 07, 2011
A Virginia man's involuntary manslaughter conviction charge was upheld in Virginia Appeals Court last month. The conviction stems from an incident in January, 2009, when three cousins attended a birthday party where alcohol was served. One of the cousins left on foot; the other two left later in a vehicle. The driver was texting along a dark roadway when he ran over and killed his cousin, who was lying in the street.
