When DUI Charges Become Felony DUI Charges

DUI is typically classified as a misdemeanor offense. However, there are circumstances in which the prosecutor may have grounds to charge you with a felony count of DUI. If you have been arrested and charged with felony DUI , it is imperative that you speak with an experienced Orange County DUI lawyer at the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry right away. A felony DUI conviction will involve in several very serious penalties , such as incarceration in state prison, up to $1,500 in fines, 18 months of mandatory DUI classes, license suspension up to 4 months, or the permanent revocation of your driver' s license.

Some factors that could enhance your charges to a felony include:

  • A 4th DUI with 10 years
  • Causing a DUI accident resulting in injury
