This offense is charged as a Class B felony punishable by two to 20 years in prison, fines of $2,000 to $5,000, the loss of your driver’s license for three years, and mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device for one to three years as a condition of reinstating your license.

DUI Causing Death in Nevada

You can be charged with this felony under various scenarios, such as:

  • Driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol that has rendered you unable to safely operate a vehicle regardless of your BAC,
  • Driving under the influence of a controlled substance, such as street drugs, prescription medicines, or even over-the-counter medicines that compromise your driving capabilities,
  • Driving under the influence of both drugs and alcohol,
  • Driving with an illegal amount of a prohibited substance in your system.

In such cases, however, you cannot be charged with murder. 

Factors that can “aggravate” your case, impacting your sentence, include driving with a minor under 15 when arrested or having three previous DUI convictions on your record. In the latter case, you can face a vehicular manslaughter charge, a Class A felony punishable by up to 25 years or life in prison.

    "I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for."
    I met with Mr. Goodman who answered all my questions and knew his stuff.  I decided to hire a less expensive attorney but was not happy with the progress ended up being a waste of money with the other guy. I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for. I should have gone with my gut reaction at the beginning that would have saved me anxiety, time, and money. Don’t make the same mistake.
