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 caused an injury to another driver, you could be liable for damages for 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.
