Defending a Felony DUI
Many factors can enhance a DUI from a misdemeanor to a felony. Those factors include: injury to another person, failure to provide proof of insurance, invalid or revoked driving privileges at the time of the offense, or multiple prior offenses.
While the potential penalties for a felony DUI are considerably harsher than those for a misdemeanor DUI, generally speaking the defense strategies are similar. Mr. Fiscella will carefully examine all aspects of your case, looking for a potentially successful defense strategy. He will explain your legal options and based on your direction, undertake a vigorous defense effort.
Whenever possible, he will seek to obtain a dismissal of the charge. He can also seek to obtain probation with no jail time or vindication at trial.
By their nature, reckless homicide cases require intense and comprehensive defense efforts. In many cases, the best course of action is to show that alcohol was not the proximate cause of the accident. To this end, Mr. Fiscella can call in experts in toxicology and blood alcohol testing who can dispute the State’s evidence and present alternative explanations for test results.
