In many criminal cases resulting from a fatal car accident, the outcome does not seem fair to the family of the deceased. The ins and outs of criminal defense strategies as well as a variety of sentencing guidelines and other factors can result in a sentence that seems woefully inadequate when an individual has died as a result of the actions of another.
