Books Explain Vehicular Homicide and Vehicular Assault in Ohio

Why would somebody want to read a book about Ohio Vehicular Homicide or Ohio Vehicular Assault?  Most people wouldn’t.  The topic is not especially interesting to people, except maybe those who love crime documentaries.  And those who are charged with Vehicular Homicide or Vehicular Assault.  For them, these books instantly become a must-read.

This blog is about DUI topics, and DUI (called ‘OVI’ in Ohio) is the basis for many charges of Vehicular Homicide and Vehicular Assault.  The books outline the different ways the offenses can be committed.  For example, causing the death of another person as a result of OVI is called ‘Aggravated Vehicular Homicide’, while causing the death of another person by committing a minor traffic offense is called ‘Vehicular Manslaughter’.  Each different offense has different possible punishments.

The books contain much more than a list of offenses and penalties.  They explain what evidence is collected and how that evidence is used in court.  The books also outline the possible defenses to these types of charges.  They give a roadmap of what to expect in each stage of the court process, and they give tools for researching lawyers.

The Ohio Vehicular Homicide Guide and the Ohio Vehicular Assault Guide can be purchased on Amazon.  The cost of the paperback version is $9.95, and the Kindle version is priced at $6.99.  The books will help individuals charged with these offenses make well-informed decisions.
