A Tallahassee man who fled a single fatal accident can be convicted of multiple leaving-the-scene charges, one for each injured victim, the Supreme Court has ruled.

Answering a certified question from the First District Court of Appeal, justices concluded that Deontae Palinski Johnson’s multiple convictions did not violate constitutional double-jeopardy protections.

“Because we conclude that section 316.027(2) contemplates prosecution on a per-crash-victim basis, rather than a per-crash basis, our answer to the certified question is no,” the justices wrote.
