Felony DUI

Drinking and driving always yields serious charges. In most cases, DUI is considered a misdemeanor; however, some instances of driving under the influence can lead to a felony charge.

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
