Court Affirms Eight Year Prison Sentence For Vehicular Assault

Vehicular Assault is a Tennessee felony offense committed when a person, as a result of intoxication, causes serious bodily injury to another person by operating a motor vehicle. It is often charged, along with DUI, when an impaired driving incident seriously injures someone else. Depending on the facts and circumstances of the case, the outcome of conviction could range from a short period of probation up to several years in prison. The Court of Criminal Appeals recently upheld an eight year prison sentence for a defendant convicted of two counts of vehicular homicide arising from the same incident. State v. Colbert, M2012-00225-CCA-R3-CD (Tenn.Crim.App. 11-9-2012).
