You may have been involved in an accident in which you caused another person to become injured and the causal evidence points back to you allegedly drinking and driving. If this is the case, you could be facing serious charges. It may only be a misdemeanor in the First Degree but you may be facing fines up to $1,000 or even a year of imprisonment. Serious injury is an entirely different matter, in which case you would be facing a Third Degree Felony. This kind of crime is punishable with a $5,000 fine or up to five years in prison.
Charges will get more serious and consequences more severe depending on whether or not you have any prior DUI convictions. For serious injury convictions, you will have a minimum three year revocation of your license. All of these things are tentative, based on whether or not you are actually convicted. In the event that your DUI charge involved the injury of another, whether serious or not, you need the help of an attorney. While many people may be facing a misdemeanor, injury from DUI charges can even reach up to felony status. Get help from a qualified Fort Myers DUI lawyer to help combat your charges.
