DUI Manslaughter Your Future is Too Important to Risk

Tampa DUI Manslaughter Lawyer

Make Sure Your Rights are Protected

Under §316.193 of the 2010 Florida Code, should a defendant kill either another human or an unborn child while operating a vehicle under the influence, they will be guilty of having committed DUI manslaughter. This is an extremely serious charge that should not be taken lightly – the penalties are severe and the long-term consequences that will stem from a successful conviction are not something that should be taken lightly. Make sure you hire an experienced Tampa DUI manslaughter lawyer from Taracks & Associates as soon as possible.

Penalties for DUI Manslaughter in Florida

This is a felony charge and could, for example, cause penalties that include a minimum of four years of incarceration and could lead to a complete loss of driving privileges. The state of Florida also considers it to be an even more severe charge should the defendant flee the scene of the accident.

The following are the penalties for a DUI manslaughter or Vehicular Homicide conviction:

  • Second Degree Felony: punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and 15 years in prison.
  • First Degree Felony: includes leaving the scene and is punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and up to 30 years imprisonment.
  • Driver License Revocation: mandatory permanent revocation. If the offender had no prior DUI convictions, they may be eligible for a hardship reinstatement after a suspension of five years after completion of DUI school.

If you have been arrested for DUI manslaughter, then you could face a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of four years. The Florida Statutes also include the killing of an unborn child as DUI manslaughter. This can also be considered either a second or first degree felony offense.
