Fort Lauderdale DUI Manslaughter Attorney
You may be faced with DUI manslaughter charges if you caused a fatal auto
accident while you were driving under the influence. The state of Florida
treats this offense as a second degree felony punishable by a maximum
of 15 years in state prison, but the crime can be increased to a first
degree felony if you are accused of
leaving the scene of the accident. If the prosecution is able to prove that you left the
scene of an accident that caused death or injury to another person, and
that you were driving while intoxicated, you will face the possibility
of spending 30 years in prison.
DUI manslaughter charges are devastatingly serious matters. After a deadly
accident has occurred, the traffic homicide investigator will take measurements
and the scene in order to determine the cause of the crash. The State
Attorney will also have blood experts and officers at the scene to gather
evidence for their case. In order for the charges against you to stick,
the prosecution must be able to prove that you were driving with a BAC
higher than 0.08 percent, and that you caused or contributed to the accident as well.
