In Mississippi, a middle aged man was officially charged with 25 years in prison because of driving under the influence and fleeting the scene of the accident. An 11 year old boy was killed as a result of the accident, and three others were severely injured as well from the accident. Two weeks ago the suspect, Curtis Chandler, pleaded guilty on the case against him, for 2 separate counts of aggravated DUI.

A felony DUI charge is considered to be any act in a vehicle in which the driver is under the influence and it causes the death or injury of another person, pedestrian or other vehicle.
