    • The charges were manslaughter and abandoning the scene of a crime, also driving while under the influence, running a red light and speeding. To compare with the US I looked it up and see in the US the base sentence for involuntary manslaughter under federal sentencing guidelines is a 10 to 16 month prison sentence.
