Few traffic charges are more complex than DUI/manslaughter charges. Because of the seriousness of the charges, highway patrol agents and other agencies work together to recreate the accident. With so many people working against you, it’s important to work with an experienced criminal defense lawyer who:
- Understands the lingo used by law enforcement officials as they try to use accident-scene evidence to prove your guilt
- Understands which experts are needed to strengthen your case
- Can knowledgeably question allegations of intoxication as well as allegations that alleged intoxication actually caused the accident and death
At the Orlando, Florida, law firm of Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law, both members of our two-member lawyer team have handled DUI/manslaughter charges both as prosecutors and as criminal defense attorneys. The result? A team that is highly knowledgeable and experienced in handling these charges.
DUI/Manslaughter Charges Are Serious
A DUI/manslaughter charge is a second-degree felony punishable by a mandatory prison sentence of at least four years and a possible 15 years in prison. Get legal help.
Often, a DUI/manslaughter conviction hinges on the wording of Florida law, which states that impairment must cause or “contribute to” the cause of death. We bring 20 years of combined experience to each case and can knowledgeably question and fight law enforcement officials’ claims. Often, drunk drivers involved in fatal accidents did not actually cause or contribute to the death in question.
Do not fight charges that bring a mandatory prison sentence of at least four years without experienced and committed legal help. Instead, contact Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law.
