Factors Resulting in Aggravated DUI Charges (Felony Drunk Driving)
A number of factors may warrant a felony drunk driving charge. If you have two prior DUI convictions, a third DUI charge may result in an aggravated DUI charge. Even if this is your first DUI charge, you may be facing felony charges for aggravated DUI if you were driving without a valid license, did not have auto insurance, or were involved in an accident causing an injury or fatality.
A conviction for felony DUI may result in a term of imprisonment for many years. A third DUI conviction, for example, may result in a term of imprisonment of three to seven years. You may be subject to a longer term of imprisonment if you caused injury or a fatality to another person.
Given the severity of penalties that may be imposed in a felony DUI case, it is critical that you retain a highly skilled criminal defense attorney who is deeply committed to protecting your rights. Our attorneys are prepared to provide the strong defense you require.
