Steep Penalties for Vehicular Homicide Convictions

Florida always considers a vehicular homicide charge as a felony to some degree. It can be charged as a second-degree felony if a driver is acting “recklessly” behind the wheel and causes the death of another.

Penalties that can be used in sentencing after a conviction include:

  • Without a legal basis for a downward departure from Florida’s Criminal Punishment Code, a minimum of 9.25 years imprisonment.
  • Maximum of fifteen years in prison.
  • Maximum of fifteen years of probation.
  • Ten-thousand dollar fine.
  • Revocation of driver’s license.

The charge can be escalated to a first-degree felony, though, if you are accused of recklessly taking the life of another in a car accident and then leaving the scene before providing identifying information and rendering aid as needed. If convicted of this charge, you may be looking at up to thirty years in prison.

  • Highly recommend Greg!

    “I don’t believe that words can put into perspective just how much Greg has helped me this last year. Not only did he assist me with other legal matters (driver license reinstatement, traffic tickets etc) that were unrelated to the serious felonies I was facing, he was happy to do so, and did it with compassion and loving kindness. I was facing two second degree felonies and a couple of third degree felonies, and at times would stress to the point of anxiety attacks. highly recommend Greg!”

  • He's simply the best.

    “I have never ever met an attornery that is so passionate about getting his clients results LIKE Mr. Rosenfeld. I wish i could explain my previous legal situation in full detail but due to my own discretion i choose not to. Nevertheless, Greg was able to get me an early termination from a 10 year felony probation sentence. Prior to Greg, i was hiring and firing lawyers that were demmed to be the best in the business. When you're fighting for your life against the judicial system you want to make sure that your attorney is as hungry and passionate about getting you off as you are. Greg is a fighter. I reccomend him to everyone that i know. I'm not sure what his overall success rate is but i've reccomended at least two other people that are overally satistied with his results. There's a ton of attorneys out there, but Greg really fights for you. Trust me, i know and seen him do it for me. He's simply the best. These days i'm not breaking the law but i got Greg on speed dial.”

  • Very good lawyer to have on your side.

    “We were in need of a lawyer really fast and after doing a lot of research, we had a meeting with Mr. Rosenfeld and decided to hire him on the spot. He was very helpful in letting us know what we were up against when it came to my son's case. He told us what to expect and what he will do for us. The prosecutor was being very difficult in the fact that she rejected everything Mr. Rosenfeld tried to negotiate for us. He worked really hard for us and in the end he got us a better deal than we expected. He was always available 24/7. Very good lawyer to have on your side.”
