DUI Manslaughter

Florida DUI Manslaughter laws are some of the toughest in the nation. Even a first offense conviction can land you behind bars for up to 15 years.


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 Leaving the Scene, the penalties increase.  You need an attorney who can provide a strong DUI defense. 


At the law firm of Harry L. Harper, drivers charged with DUI Manslaughter and other drunk driving offenses are vigorously defended. Contact our office to learn about your rights and options if you have been charged with these or related offenses.


Mr. Harper works to suppress evidence that was obtained illegally.  Attacking breathalyzer  results and other evidence presented by the state, he works to provide you the best resolution possible.  In simple DUI cases, he investigates the traffic stop and DUI arrest to determine whether it was proper and probable cause was warranted.  We make every effort to ensure you were properly advised of your rights before taking a field sobriety test or breathalyzer test.  Whether the charge is DUI/Manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter, or drunk driving, DUI defense attorney Harry L. Harper works to get the charges dismissed, negotiates plea bargains, or propose alternate penalties.


Helping Drivers Recover Their Licenses


If your license was suspended because of your blood alcohol content or because you refused to take a breathalyzer test, Mr. Harper will represent you at the administrative hearing required for you to recover your license.  You may also be able to obtain a hardship license allowing you to drive to and from work.  He knows the laws and penalties that apply in DUI cases and uses this knowledge to make sure his clients receive every opportunity to defend themselves against DUI charges.  We are particularly vigilant in cases of teenage drunk driving, making sure that the young person has an opportunity to put their life back together after a DUI charge.
