When Does a DUI Become a Felony?

In the United States of America, a felony refers to a serious crime. If you are charged with a DUI offense, the severity of the offense is naturally higher. Here are the circumstances under which DUI charges may become a felony:

  • Three DUI charges within a span of 10 years.
  • Involvement in an accident where someone is killed and you were driving under the influence of alcohol.
  • Conviction for DUI charges along with other charges, attempting to escape, and causing the death of a victim.
  • Severe injuries sustained by someone in an accident where you were driving under the influence.

Facing such situations can be overwhelming and leave you feeling lost. At Mountaineer Criminal Law Group, our Hancock County DUI lawyer has successfully represented numerous clients in challenging DUI cases, effectively minimizing the charges. If you are dealing with the complexities of a DUI case, contact our Hancock County DUI lawyer immediately for a solution.

Difference between felony, misdemeanor

The distinction between felony and misdemeanor is an important one to understand. In the case of a DUI as a first-time offender, if injuries are sustained in the accident, it will be considered a criminal offense. For repeat offenders, the outcome can be even more serious, potentially resulting in a felony conviction. However, there is still hope. Our Hancock county criminal lawyer can provide assistance and representation to fight for your case and strive for reduced charges.

When it comes to DUI felonies in West Virginia, it is crucial to be aware of the following categories:

  • Third offense DUI

I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate.
