Kirkland Felony DUI Lawyers

A felony DUI can have a major impact on a person's life due to the substantial increase in penalties associated with these more severe charges. A felony DUI conviction carries many penalties that are drastically increased due to the nature of felony allegations. In particular, a person may be required to serve out a mandatory jail sentence as a result of a conviction. Additionally, the fines associated with DUI can sharply increase with a felony DUI conviction in comparison to a misdemeanor DUI.

To discuss your rights as a defendant in a DUI case that is being prosecuted as a felony, contact the Kirkland felony DUI attorneys of Cowan Kirk at 866-822-1230 today.

Felony DUI Allegations

A person may be arrested for DUI if they are found to have a BAC above 0.08, which can be determined through chemical tests and may be supported through field sobriety tests and other behavioral analyses.

If arrested, a person may be charged with felony DUI under the following circumstances:

  • They have been convicted of four or more DUIs within the past 10 years
  • They have been previously convicted of a felony DUI
  • They have been previously convicted of intoxicated vehicular assault or homicide

A felony DUI comes with significantly more severe penalties than a misdemeanor DUI, including many collateral consequences that may drastically worsen with a felony-grade charge.
