35. Manslaughter doesn't require criminal intent

They just have to prove you behaved so recklessly that you exposed the public to danger. I'm not going to make a comment on her guilt or innocence because I don't know the situation. I think that if she made an agreement with her boyfriend to be the designated driver before they started drinking, she may not be to blame. However, if she just handed the keys over to him knowing they both had been drinking, she is part and parcel to the crime. That's still very reckless behavior. The moral to the story is have a plan on how you're going to get home before you start drinking.
