Criminal Practice – Involuntary Manslaughter – Death by Vehicle – Simultaneous Prosecution – G.S. § 20-141.4(c) (access required)

State v. Elmore Although G.S. § 20-141.4(c) says no one who has been placed in jeopardy on a charge of death by vehicle may be prosecuted for manslaughter arising out of the same death, what the statute means is that no one can be sentenced for both offenses. We find no error in defendant’s conviction of involuntary manslaughter.
