When Is a DUI a Felony?
As a driver, you are expected to abide by the laws of the road. This means when you are repeatedly found to be operating a vehicle while intoxicated, you could suffer greater consequences.
You could face a felony DUI if:
- The charge was your third within 10 years of the second DUI conviction
- This was your fourth DUI
Those penalties can also be enhanced if there was a child under the age of 14 in your vehicle at the time of the arrest, or if you caused any injuries or damage to property.
