What Makes a DUI a Felony

While each potential DUI situation can be handled uniquely, there are many instances where a driver accused of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol can face felony charges. These include:

  • If a third party was grievously injured in an accident involving the accused driver
  • If a minor was in the car as a passenger to the accused driver
  • If extensive property damage resulted from an accident influence by the accused
  • If the accused driver had been previously found guilty of DUI or DWI
  • If multiple crimes were committed by the accused, including DUI

If found guilty, an individual convicted of felony DUI could face extensive jail time, exorbitant fines, and strict probationary terms.
