Tampa Man Gets 15-Year Prison Sentence for DUI Manslaughter Conviction

Monday, February 17, a man in Tampa was sentenced to 15 years in prison as well as a sentence of probation, as the defendant had entered a plea of guilty to three DUI manslaughter charges. Back in September of 2010, he had been arrested on charges of drunk driving and speeding when police said that he caused an accident in which three people were killed. If the case had gone to trial instead of ending with a guilty plea, however, then the 23-year-old could have been looking at a prison sentence of thirty years.

As it is, fifteen years is still a hefty sentence. Even a reduced DUI sentence will be a serious one, as any DUI conviction can carry the life-long penalty of having a criminal record. This holds true even for cases where no one was hurt. If a defendant gets branded as a convicted criminal, this penalty will affect their every job interview, their every application for a house or a loan, a taint to his or reputation that they might never outlive.
