What Makes A DUI A Felony?
In California, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is usually a misdemeanor offense. However, three circumstances can raise the charges to felony DUI:
1) If an accident has occurred and another person died or suffered serious bodily injury
2) If you have been convicted of three or more DUIs within the previous 10 years
3) If you have at least one previous felony DUI conviction
If any of these factors apply, the offense may be charged as a felony and the penalties that you face will be far more severe. Not only can a felony drunk driving conviction trigger loss of your driving privileges for several years, but it can also result in a lengthy jail sentence and heavy fines. A felony on your record will bring many negative consequences long after your sentence is complete.
To defend against a felony drunk driving charge, you need a skilled and experienced attorney who will present the strongest possible defense. Recognized by both his clients and his peers for his hard work and dedication, Ron Cordova has the experience and knowledge to achieve favorable results in even the most difficult and challenging cases.
