OWI Causing Death in Indiana

Obtain Legal Representation from Our Fort Wayne OWI Lawyer

When you drive with a BAC of .08 or higher while intoxicated, or under the influence of drugs, and cause an accident that results in the death of another person, you will face significant felony penalties. In addition, you may be charged with a separate felony for each fatality.

If you have been arrested for OWI causing the death of another driver in Indiana, our Fort Wayne OWI lawyer is dedicated to getting your charges reduced or your case dismissed entirely. We have an extensive track record of success helping our clients navigate through the complexities of state driving laws in order to obtain the outcome they desire.

Penalties for OWI Causing Death

A first offense for OWI causing death is categorized as a Level 5 felony, which is punishable by a prison sentence between one and six years, as well as a fine of up to $10,000. If you have a previous OWI conviction within the past 5 years or were driving under an OWI driver’s suspension or revocation, the offense is considered a Level 4 felony, punishable by a prison sentence between two and 12 years and a fine of up to $10,000. If you were 21 or older and caused the death of another driver while your BAC was .15 or higher, the offense is a Level 4 felony.
