Leaving the Scene of an Accident
Tampa DUI Defense Attorney
Simple drunk driving offenses are looked upon very seriously in the state of Florida, and often carry stiff penalties. The offense becomes even more serious when an injurious or fatal accident is involved. Should the person leave the scene of that accident, they may face felony charges, especially if the other motorist has been killed.
DUI manslaughter with a charge of leaving the scene can result in first-degree felony charges with penalties being levied that include fines of up to $10,000 and up to 30 years in prison.
