Alleged 18 Year Old Drunk Driver Kills 5 Year Old Girl – DUI Felony Eminent

Carly Russo has been charged with a misdemeanor of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol in the Highland Park area of Chicago. However, officials and certain family members are outraged that she has been charged with only a misdemeanor and they are overlooking the fact that an innocent 5 year old girl was killed in the process. Chicago law enforcement officials stated they are waiting for results from the toxicology report before they file anymore charges.

What would happen if the accused offender performed this action in Washington State? In most cases, when you are accused of a DUI that results in a fatality it is considered a Felony. Therefore, Russo may be facing possible felony convictions that will result in mandatory jail time, restriction or suspension of her license, drug/ alcohol treatment programs, and expensive fines and fees. Even though Russo was 18 at the time of the incident, she will still receive the same treatment as an adult.

If you or a loved one has been arrested for a DUI, it’s important that you retain the legal counsel of an aggressive DUI lawyer immediately.
