Misdemeanor vs. Felony DUI Charges in Orange County

A misdemeanor is a lesser offense than a felony and therefore may carry lesser potential penalties than felonies. A misdemeanor may be punishable by up to 12 months in jail and a felony may be punishable by a minimum of 1 year in prison. Certain serious felony offenses may result in many years in a state correctional facility, life in prison or even the death penalty.

While a felony DUI offense will likely not result in the death penalty, a driver may face up to 4 or even 10 years in state prison for a serious charge such as vehicular manslaughter. Even a fourth DUI offense may result in a sentence of up to 3 years in prison. DUI causing injury may result in a 3 year prison sentence, with an additional 3 years should the victim sustain serious bodily injury.
