Florida woman facing DUI manslaughter charge after two crashes

Facing a situation directly is how many people choose to address predicaments. When the issue at hand relates to criminal charges for DUI that resulted in a fatality, finding the most viable and prudent manner in which to handle the case may be wise. Of course, for individuals who do not have much knowledge on their options, this step may seem impossible. Fortunately, there are avenues for gaining help.

One woman in Florida will likely want to determine her available legal options after recently being charged in a fatal event. Reports stated that the woman had been driving a vehicle around 7 p.m. when her SUV left the road and went along a sidewalk. A 39-year-old man was walking on the sidewalk at the time and was reportedly hit by the SUV. The woman allegedly drove away from the scene and was involved in another crash a short distance away.

The pedestrian who was hit suffered injuries that proved fatal. As a result, the woman is currently facing multiple criminal charges. Those allegations include DUI manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a suspended or revoked license.

The felony charges brought against this woman could greatly impact her future. Undoubtedly, she wants to find the best options for combating the DUI manslaughter and other allegations she now faces. At this time, she may feel immensely overwhelmed, but she may find it helpful to allow herself to become more knowledgeable on various parts of her case and her defense options by utilizing local Florida legal resources.
