Felony DUI

Riverside Felony DUI Attorney

Facing Felony Charges for Driving Under the Influence?

Although driving under the influence (DUI) is a crime typically prosecuted as a misdemeanor offense, under certain circumstances, felony charges may arise. Regardless of the precise factors involved, all felony allegations pose detrimental and life-altering consequences. From substantial fines and prison sentences to a lifetime of restrictions and limitations, the penalties you face are too severe to allow your case to go without the experienced legal representation our Riverside felony DUI attorneys provide.

For skilled legal counsel, call Law Offices of Grech & Packer at (951) 291-0105 today.

Situations That May Lead To Felony Charges

The following instances can result in a felony DUI charge:

  • Fourth DUI Conviction: You will be subjected to a felony DUI charge if you have been convicted of three DUIs within the past 10 years. In addition to standard DUI charges, prior convictions can also include wet reckless convictions and DUIs in other states.
  • Prior Felony DUI Conviction: If you were convicted of a felony DUI for any reason and at any time, you will face felony DUI charges – even if the new DUI allegation is not a felony offense itself or if it has been more than 10 years since your prior felony DUI conviction.
  • DUI Causing Injury: Under California Vehicle Code § 23153, DUIs resulting in bodily harm to another are considered separate and more serious criminal offenses. Depending on the facts, a DUI causing injury can be prosecuted as a felony offense.
  • Vehicular Manslaughter While Intoxicated: If, while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, a person causes the death of another, they can be charged for vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. This is a serious criminal offense penalized by mandatory minimum terms of imprisonment in a state prison.
