What Constitutes a Felony DUI Charge?

Felony charges hold significantly increased penalties from “simple” or misdemeanor DUI charges. There are aggravating factors that can be tacked onto your DUI that will ultimately determine if your case is a felony offense.

Common DUI charges that constitute a felony case include:

  • Prior DUI convictions – This is especially true if your prior convictions happened within the last 10 years or if you have been convicted of multiple wet reckless offenses.
  • Injury or fatal accidents – If you were arrested because you caused an accident that seriously injured or killed another person, or if there were multiple victims in the accident, you automatically are charged with a felony DUI.
  • Prior felony DUI conviction – Even if your case would have been considered a misdemeanor crime, if you have a prior felony DUI conviction, you will be charged with a felony offense.

Felony DUI penalties can include extended prison sentencing, steep fines, restitution to victims or their families, suspension of driving privileges (including revocation of driver’s license and impoundment of your vehicle), and a mandatory Ignition Interlock Device installed onto your vehicle.

Do Not Face the California Criminal System Alone

Felony DUI cases are serious crimes, and you need to take action to protect yourself and your future. Any DUI case has the potential to have additional penalties tacked on, and you could end up facing a felony charge.
