South Carolina teen facing two felony DUI charges

The summer months are here and the school year has come to an end. This time of year means teenagers have more time to socialize and hang out with friends. At times these hangouts and events may involve the consumption of alcohol. Unfortunately, an event that starts out as teenagers just trying to have a good time can end tragically and have a long-term negative impact on the life of a young adult.

An 18-year-old South Carolina man is facing felony DUI charges after a two-car collision that left one person seriously injured and another dead. All of the details surrounding the accident have not yet been released. However, after the collision, South Carolina authorities arrested the 18-year-old boy. A 21-year-old passenger in the other vehicle suffered fatal injuries as a result of the accident.

The South Carolina man is facing charges for two counts of felony DUI. The first count is for felony DUI causing great bodily harm and the second is for felony DUI causing death to another. The injuries that were caused by the accident are very unfortunate. However, the impact that these charges could have on the life of the accused could also be very negative. Therefore, it is very important that anyone facing charges of this nature protect their rights by asserting the best possible defenses.

A conviction for charges that result from driving while intoxicated can be accompanied by serious penalties and have a very negative and long-term impact on the defendant's life. However, there are experienced DUI defense attorneys in South Carolina that can help in these situations. A rigorous defense will help ensure the best possible outcome for the accused.
