Orlando PI Lawyer
Orlando personal injury lawyer James O. Cunningham fully supports anything that reduces the number of drunk drivers on our roads and believes that an 18th Circuit Court judge in Seminole County may be onto something. Judge Carmine Bravo has been famous for his creative approach to sentencing for quite some time, but the never-ending parade of DUI cases in his court has prompted him to hand down some unusual sentencing since 2004. Since then, he has sentenced those convicted of drunk driving and other traffic offenses to write 500-word essays about people whose names appear on the many roadside markers in Central Florida.
An Orlando man accused of driving a vehicle that struck and killed a 15-year-old East Orange County boy in 2010 and then fled the scene of the accident is now in jail. The 30-year-old suspect turned himself in to Florida Highway Patrol troopers recently and faces charges of leaving the scene of an accident with injuries, violating a restriction on a driver’s license and failing to stop at a hit-and-run accident involving the death of the teen in November 2010. If convicted on the hit-and-run charge, the man could receive 30 years in prison.
