Penalties for Felony DUI Charges
Felony DUI charges can lead to serious penalties. Specifically, a driver
could be charged with a class 4 felony if the violation occurred after
three or more prior convictions of
DUI or DWAI, vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, or any combination of the three.
Further, a driver could be charged with a class 4 felony if the violation
occurred not more than 7 years after the first of two prior convictions
of DUI or DWAI, vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, or any combination
of the three, if special circumstances exist like having a child in the
car, injuring or damaging a person or property, fleeing the scene, or
if the driver's BAC is 0.15 or higher. Class 4 felonies carry a minimum
prison sentence of two years, a maximum prison sentence of six years,
and three years of mandatory parole.
