Young woman charged with DUI manslaughter on I-75

If you’ve gotten a DUI in Florida, you’re aware it’s a serious situation to be in. Committing a repeat offense can result in greater penalties.

A Riverview woman who was allegedly driving drunk killed an Orlando man on a motorcycle in Hillsborough county on I-75. The driver, 21, faces one count of DUI manslaughter and a violation of drivers license restrictions. The man killed in the accident was 28-years-old and from Orlando. He died at the scene.

Yes, your DUI can have significant impacts on your life

Of all the things you could get into trouble for in Florida, a DUI is one of the more serious. A DUI charge with a conviction can land you in jail or prison and result in you having to pay heavy fines.

Although people get DUIs nearly every day, that doesn't mean that the authorities are likely to make light of them. DUIs are very serious. A single DUI charge has a fine of up to $1,000 for a first conviction. If a minor was in your vehicle or your blood alcohol content (BAC) was over .15%, then the fines are no less than $1,000 and no more than $2,000.
