DUI With Injury
When you are charged with a DUI and others are injured, your case may become very serious. If you are drunken driving at the scene of the accident, the arresting officer may not investigate the accident any further because they have already decided you were the cause. Depending on the severity of the accident and whether or not the individual has any prior offenses, they can be charged with a felony. If you are charged with vehicular manslaughter, then you are facing a felony. If convicted of a felony, you may face a long jail sentence, fines, restitution, and lawsuits from the injured parties. While penalties can range you may be subject to five years in jail, a $5,000 fine, and completion of a treatment program or evaluation.
