A DUI in Las Vegas Can Ruin Your Life: Hire an Attorney

As you may have seen reported in recent news across the valley, a 45 year old Las Vegas man has been sentenced to 8 to 20 years in state prison after pleading guilty to driving under the influence and leaving the scene of a fatal crash.

Rafael Mendez-Soto plead guilty this past September, after hitting his Ford F-150 into a 57 year old construction worker who was hard at work on July 20th on Sahara Blvd. It was approximately 9:30 a.m. when the victim was hit and killed by Mendez-Soto.

Judge Jennifer Togliatti informed Mendez-Soto that after he is released from prison, in 8 to 20 years, he will have the chance to help others become aware of how careless and irresponsible mistakes such as driving under the influence can ruin multiple lives.
