Felony DUI Lawyer in Bakersfield
What Makes a DUI a Felony?
Felony DUI charges are extremely serious. In California most first DUI charges are classed as a "misdemeanor". However, if an accident with injury or death occurs or the charge is your fourth DUI charge in 10 years, it will be classified as a “Felony DUI".
In Bakersfield, the district attorney's office may charge you with a felony, even if you are the only person injured or the injury is as minor as a broken fingernail. This kind of charge can create havoc in your life, ruining your reputation and your future.
If convicted of a felony DUI charge in California, you may:
- spend years in state prison
- loser your license
- pay restitution
- pay thousands in fines
- participate in mandated treatment programs
When an injury is involved with your accident, you are facing felony charges, or if a fatality occurs, you could be facing charges for vehicular manslaughter.
