Charged With Leaving the Scene?
Fleeing the scene of an accident is no small matter, and a conviction can bring serious consequences including jail time, fines and the suspension of your driver’s license. If you were also driving under the influence at the time of the accident, a prosecutor has a golden opportunity to pile on the punishment.

Did You Hit a Pedestrian?
Any DUI incident that involves an injury can result in felony DUI. The punishments for a felony DUI conviction can include time in the state prison in addition to steep fines and the suspension and/or revocation of your driver’s license and privilege to drive. Depending on what other charges are filed against you, you could be looking at 16 months in state prison or more.
If you fled the scene after your accident, you can also be charged with hit and run. If you are involved in a felony hit and run (where an injury occurred from your accident) in addition to felony DUI, you could be spending the next few years of your life behind bars. You cannot afford to step into the courtroom without an experienced criminal trial lawyer.
