When is a DUI considered a felony?

For such a serious conviction, the court has to have proof that there are good reasons backing the charges up. Although every case and the circumstances surrounding it are different, there are constants that can take a simple DUI conviction to the next level.

Any of the following may constitute a felony DUI:

  • It is the defendant's third offense
  • The accident caused severe bodily harm to another party
  • A previous DUI conviction that resulted in a homicide
  • The accident caused the death of another person
  • The defendant had an expired or invalid license
  • The defendant was without car insurance

Penalties for such an offense can include up to 7 years imprisonment, mandatory Interlock Ignition Device (IID), up to $2,500 in fines, and suspended license for a minimum of 10 years. Furthermore, a felony conviction can make it exceedingly difficult to obtain employment in the future.
