Why You Were Charged With Felony Drunk Driving
Typically, drunk driving is a misdemeanor. First, second and third offenders are not subject to felony charges. Only on the fourth offense is the charge upgraded to felony level. Like all felonies, the penalties for felony DUI are extremely serious, which is why these charges need to be fought. We will fight for you.
Helping You Fight Felony DUI Penalties
If you are convicted of felony DUI charges, you are going to be looking at jail time. In fact, there is a minimum one-year prison sentence involved. This is a criminal charge that will appear as a felony on your criminal record. When a potential employer asks if you have been convicted of a felony, you will have to say yes. There are also fines involved.
To make matters worse, people accused of felony drunk driving may also qualify as a habitual motor vehicle offender (HMVO). This label comes with its own set of penalties and restrictions, above and beyond those that come with the felony DUI charges.
We do not like to lose felony DUI cases because we know exactly how severe the penalties are. By nature, we are also extremely competitive, which means we are always willing to go the extra mile. We will fight these charges.
