I don't think that he should be charged with 100 percent of the accident as the person behind him was clearly traveling too close. What are the consequences? Will he do additional jail time? What should he expect? Thank you.
If your boyfriend is charged with DUI causing injury one of the legal issues will be whether or not he caused the...
