Florida Woman Faces DUI Charge After Chain-Reaction Crash

Sunday, March 23, a Marion County woman had several charges leveled against her for a crash that had occurred more than a week before. According to law enforcement, the woman was speeding down the road on March 12, when she is said to have crashed into a car that was halted at a stop sign. The impact sent the stopped car crashing into another vehicle. As a result, the 53-year-old woman faces charges that include:

  • Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol: This could carry a 6-month jail sentence, $250 in fines, 1 year of driver's license suspension, and 50 hours of community service.
  • DUI Property Damage
  • DUI Injury: This could entail five years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines.
  • DUI Serious Bodily Injury: This means being charged with inflicting an injury that could have killed someone, led to disfigurement, or to catastrophic injury. When serious bodily injury results in a suspected DUI accident, there could be a forced blood draw under Florida law.

These penalties would apply if this were only a first-time DUI charge. Previous convictions, especially any felony convictions, could mean much more severe penalties. Regardless of the exact sentencing, a conviction will always mean a criminal record, which not only tarnishes one's reputation, but preserves this taint before the public eye, which means that any potential employer or landlord can access this record.
