Felony-Grade Penalties for a Felony-Grade Crime

To be charged with a felony DUI, a driver may be held responsible for repeat offenses or may be arrested after a particularly destructive event. Injuries and property damage caused while a person is drunk behind the wheel can be grounds for felony DUI charges. Additionally, being convicted of 4 prior DUIs in a 10-year period can elevate subsequent DUIs to the level of a felony. The consequences of a conviction may include:

  • Prison sentences
  • Probationary periods
  • Fines and restitution
  • Civil damages if someone was injured
  • Loss of gun ownership rights
  • Loss of travel opportunities
  • Loss of insurance
  • Job loss or license loss

In many situations, these penalties, which are increased in severity and breadth compared to misdemeanor penalties, can have an irreversible effect on a person's future.
