DUI Manslaughter

DUI Manslaughter Defense in Fort Myers

The Dedicated, Tenacious Defense You Need

Being charged with DUI under any circumstances is a serious concern. However, if you stand accused of causing another person’s death due to driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the consequences of a conviction become much more severe. The local courts tend to deliver harsh punishments in drunk driving cases. Your freedom and future may be at stake, and with so much on the line, you cannot afford to wait. Instead, act decisively and seek out our proven Fort Myers DUI lawyers.

Penalties for Conviction

If accused of being responsible for a fatal collision due to being drunk, you are facing felony DUI charges that can come with many consequences.

DUI manslaughter is considered a second-degree felony, which is accompanied by penalties that may include:

  • A fine of up to $10,000
  • Prison for up to 15 years
  • Mandatory, permanent driver’s license revocation

If you leave the scene after the fact, however, it may be charged as a first-degree felony, for which the maximum prison sentence is increased to 30 years.
