Thank you for clarifying the specific charge as set forth in the Penal Code.

Penal Code section 192, subdivision (c) vehicular manslaughter is a "wobbler." A wobbler means the District Attorney can charge this crime as either a felony or a misdemeanor.

If convicted of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, he faces up to one year in a county jail. If he is convicted of felony vehicular manslaughter, he faces anywhere from two to ten years in the state prison.
