DUI Manslaughter Law in Florida
Perhaps the most serious DUI allegation one can face, DUI manslaughter involves a person causing death to another or to an "unborn quick child" while driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol. According to
Title XXIII § 316.193, DUI manslaughter is a second-degree felony offense and is punishable by severe and numerous criminal penalties. Although cases and punishments may vary, this charge carries a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of four years.
Should there be any additional aggravating circumstances involved in your case, such as a prior DUI conviction, a high blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level, or the failure to request medical attention for an injured party, these criminal penalties can be significantly enhanced. Regardless of the particular facts, the penalties involved are in every way life-altering. Anyone facing a DUI manslaughter charge should make retaining experienced legal counsel their first priority.
