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.

He was extremely helpful in getting through this very difficult time in my life. Got a great and unexpected result; very impressive.

After being presented by several lawyers, Greg was the one that got the job done. Thanks to Greg i was able to avoid Prison time, avoid probation and walked away without a felony conviction. That's unheard of, i'm not saying other lawyers aren't good, what i am saying is that Greg is the BEST. I'm the proof of it. I've seen Greg in action turning every rock to get things going in your favor. I was lucky to have met him by mistake. I was referred to Greg in shackles by another attorney who could've presented me cause my lawyer was so aweful. lol”

  • 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.”

  • If you need a lawyer to do what you think cannot be done, this is the one you need to call.

    “Let me start by saying if youre looking for a lawyer, stop here. This man 100 percent saved my life. I'm 29 years old with a history of addiction and a drug related prior. I was facing a 3rd degree felony that had been dragged through the courts for a year before I called Greg. The prosecutor hated me, and even though I got my life together he had made it very clear that my chances were up and I had done too little too late. Thinking this was it, I dropped my other lawyer and called Greg off of a recommendation--a last minute shot in the dark. I wish I called him from the start. With little to no notice, Greg worked his magic and I now have the chance to make something of myself and continue down my chosen career path, record free. Every court officer I have spoken with was in disbelief over the outcome, I was told it was a "major win," but that was something I already knew. I thought the consequences of my past were going to dictate my future, and he worked tirelessly to make sure that didn't happen. I told him my story, I showed him how hard I work, and he believed in me and fought for me. From the bottom of my heart, I will never be able to express my gratitude. If you need a lawyer to do what you think cannot be done, this is the one you need to call. Although he more than fulfilled his duties, he has still remained just a phone call away--always answering--to help me through the final phase of my case. You can't put a price on peace of mind, but if you could, he should start charging double. I'm not rich, but I got a wealthy man's lawyer. He worked with me there too. Thank you Greg, thank you, thank you, thank you...”
