On behalf of Steven Wetter of Steven Wetter Attorney at Law, P.A. posted in Felony DUI on Wednesday, April 12, 2017.
As a Floridian who is facing charges of DUI manslaughter or DUI with serious bodily injury, you should be aware of exactly what is at stake for you. At Steven Wetter, P.A., we work to highlight the potential penalties you may face if you find yourself convicted of these charges, and how they could affect your life.
Both causing or contributing to a vehicular accident while under the influence or hitting a pedestrian while under the influence can carry strong penalties in the state of Florida. There is a very real chance that even a first-time offender could be facing things as severe as jail time if convicted of a felony DUI crime. Depending on the charges, you may be facing as much as 10 years in jail if someone was killed. If the accident you were involved in left someone with permanent or serious injury, you could end up with up to 4 years in jail.
