Felony DUI Accidents
The majority of felony DUI cases involve an accident in which innocent
victims have been injured or killed. If a prosecutor is to successfully
convict one of felony DUI, they must have the ability to prove that the
collision was caused only by the intoxicated driver, and no one else.
