FELONY DUI ATTORNEY IN ORANGE COUNTY
In the State of California, most DUI offenses involving alcohol or drugs are considered misdemeanors or “simple DUI.” There are, however, some exceptions to this. If certain “aggravating factors” are present in the case, a felony DUI may result. Some of these “aggravating factors” include:
- Causing death or injury to another individual while driving under the influence
- Having 3 or more DUI convictions within 10 years (having 3 or more “wet reckless” convictions may also lead to a felony DUI charge)
- Having a prior felony DUI conviction on your record
Sometimes, whether or not a DUI is charged at the felony or the misdemeanor level is at the discretion of the prosecution. However, the prosecution has a tendency to seek the strongest possible penalties and situations involving discretion are relatively rare in any case. If any of the situations above apply to you, then it is likely that your DUI charge will be at the felony level.
Needing Help Does Not Make You a Bad Person
Even if you are familiar with the legal proceedings for an “ordinary” misdemeanor-level DUI, do not expect that the procedure for a felony charge will be similar. If you are being charged with felony DUI then it is important to acknowledge that the consequences may be even more life-altering than those you are already dealing with.
