DUI Manslaughter

St. Petersburg DUI Lawyer Defending Charges of Vehicular Homicide - Manslaughter

Representation after a serious drunk driving accident in St. Petersburg

A car accident that results in death is devastating to the survivors and their families, as well as to the loved ones of the deceased. If the accident leads to criminal charges, a driver who has never before violated the law may suddenly face lengthy incarceration, heavy fines and the permanent loss of driving privileges. The St. Petersburg criminal lawyers at Kidder & Bennett have more than 25 years of experience representing drivers charged with drunk driving, DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide.

Penalties for DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide

A conviction for DUI manslaughter or vehicular homicide carries stiff penalties that can include up to 15 years of imprisonment and a $10,000 fine. Leaving the scene of the accident in which a person was killed can result in a first degree felony conviction and a jail sentence of up to 30 years. Your driver's license is revoked — permanently if you are convicted of DUI manslaughter, and for a minimum of three years for vehicular homicide.

Defending your rights during a DUI manslaughter investigation

After a serious auto accident, law enforcement will scrutinize every word you say and action you take to determine your potential intoxication or drug use and your possible criminal liability. Our knowledgeable DUI defense team investigates the causes of the accident — typically relying on the expert opinions of engineers, accident reconstructionists and medical professionals. We attack the prosecution's claims that you were not sober and develop sophisticated defense theories to counter the state attorney’s charges against you.
