What You Are Facing

criminal record

A Felony DUI charge occurs when you are charged with DUI and have three or more DUI convictions in the United States within the past five years.

The charge carries the most severe DUI consequences, some of which exceed a regular felony conviction. Those penalties include:

  • 1 to 5 years in Jail with a Minimum Term 120 Days Without Probation
  • 1 Year of Alcohol or Substance Abuse Treatment
  • 60 Month License Suspension

Not only do you have significant penalties, but the process takes significantly longer than previous DUI convictions because it is felony. Felony charges are handled in Circuit Court, but before they get there they must go through the process of a probable cause hearing and presentation to the grand jury.

Our experience with felony DUI charges and the felony criminal process is there for you as we work with you to get through one of the most troubling times in your life.
