Florida DUI Defense Attorney
Florida DUI laws are tough and can lead to a prison sentence even after a first-time conviction. They can cause your license to be suspended and require you to pay heavy fines. If the charge also includes manslaughter, the penalties are harsher still. Conviction of DUI/Manslaughter makes you a felon, levies a fine of up to $10,000, and can send you to prison for up to 15 years. If you are convicted of both DUI/Manslaughter and of Leaving the Scene, the penalties increase. You need an attorney who can provide a strong DUI defense.
