In Brevard County, a DUI Manslaughter charge is extremely serious and should not be taken lightly. The penalties for a conviction are severe and the long-term consequences can be costly. DUI Manslaughter is a second degree felony punishable by up to 15 years state prison. In addition, the State of Florida provides for enhanced penalties if the driver flees from the scene of the crash.
