Miami DUI Manslaughter Lawyer
Defining DUI Manslaughter in Florida
In the state of Florida, anyone who drives under the influence of alcohol
and causes an accident that results in someone's death can be charged
with DUI manslaughter. Even though the fatality was not intentional, the
death of the innocent victim was the direct result of the intoxicated
driver's negligence; therefore, the drunk driver is guilty of manslaughter.
DUI manslaughter is a second-degree felony. As such, the penalties includes
a fine of up to $10,000 and / or 15 years in prison. If the intoxicated
driver knew or should have known that the accident occurred and yet they
failed to give information and render aid, it is a first-degree felony.
The penalties for a first-degree felony include a fine of up to $10,000
and / or 30 years in prison.
