Sarasota Woman Misses Prison Sentence After DUI With Serious Bodily Injury

Published: Jan 11, 2016 by Erika Valcarcel

Not too long ago, a woman in her 30s from Sarasota County was charged with 3rd-degree felony DUI with serious bodily injury. The woman, a housekeeper in the area, was facing a maximum of five years in prison after severely injuring another person. Looking to avoid any length of a prison sentence, the woman reached out to experienced Sarasota County DUI attorney Erika Valcarcel for legal guidance in this serious DUI.

Attorney Valcarcel was quick to respond to the matter at hand. A further look into the case revealed the blood kit used to test our client’s BAC was expired. Utilizing this critical information, attorney Valcarcel consulted with numerous experts to negotiate a positive outcome for the woman. At the conclusion of pre-trial negotiations, our client widely missed a prison sentence. Our client was placed on house arrest and a short term of probation, yielding an astounding result for our client.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
