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.
