WHAT CONSTITUTES A FELONY DUI?
Felony DUI is reserved for repeat or aggravated offenses. In general, if you have been convicted of your second DUI offense, you will be at risk for a felony DUI for the following 10 years. If you receive your third conviction during this time, you will receive a third-degree felony resulting in penalties such as license suspension and multiple years in prison.
You can also be at risk for felony DUI under the following circumstances:
A fourth conviction, received at any time
DUI manslaughter or child endangerment
Fleeing from the scene of an accident
DUI resulting in severe property damage
An offense causing serious injury to another person
