DUI Manslaughter Defense in Orlando
Aggressive Defense Against DUI Manslaughter Charges In Central Florida
When a DUI accident (or drunk driving accident) in Central Florida results in the death of a pedestrian, a person in another vehicle or a passenger in your vehicle, you may face DUI manslaughter charges. Given the potential sentence you face — up to 15 years in prison — it's important to put your case in the hands of an experienced Orlando vehicular manslaughter defense attorney as soon as possible.
At the law firm of LaBar Adams, we would love to meet with you and discuss the circumstances of your accident case. Orlando lawyer N. Ryan LaBar has handled hundreds of driving under the influence cases in Orlando and central Florida. He knows how to prepare the strongest possible defense if you are charged with DUI manslaughter.
Consequences Of A DUI Manslaughter Conviction
DUI manslaughter is a second-degree felony. A few years ago, a person convicted of DUI manslaughter or vehicular homicide would typically serve from two to three years in prison. Today, sentences average about 12 years. The maximum sentence is 15 years in prison. A conviction also carries a mandatory lifetime driver's license revocation.
If you are also charged with leaving the scene of the accident, the penalties are greatly increased including a $10,000 fine and a prison sentence of up to thirty years.
To convict you, the state must prove both elements of the crime: that you caused the accident and that you were impaired by drugs or alcohol. As your lawyer, N. Ryan LaBar will carefully evaluate every aspect of the state's case to determine the most effective defense. Just because you are accused of a crime does not mean that the state can prove it.
