Penalties of a Felony DUI Conviction
If you are convicted of a felony DUI charge, you will be subjected to serious
and harmful penalties for several years. A felony DUI charge usually carries
a hefty jail sentence of a year or more, possibly being served in a state
prison. Fines for felony DUIs are usually well in excess of $1,000, often
exceeding $10,000 in total once all fees are paid. In the event your DUI

the other party, which can equate to thousands of additional dollars as
well. And furthermore, you could have your licenses suspended for several
years and be required to attend alcohol and drug education classes, and more.
