Have you been arrested and charged with a felony DUI?

Being arrested for or charged with a felony DUI is an extremely serious offense. In the state of Georgia, most DUI charges are classified as misdemeanors; however felony DUI charges can be brought about under one or more of the following circumstances:

  • The driver has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) significantly above the .08% legal limit,
  • The driver causes an accident which results in serious injuries or death to another, or
  • The driver has committed multiple DUIs and is facing their 4th DUI offense in a 10 year period.

If I am convicted of a felony DUI, what can happen?

Just one DUI conviction is enough to seriously hinder your livelihood through restricted freedoms and financial consequences that drain your savings. As per Georgia House Bill 336, which was enacted in May of 2008, a 4th DUI violation within a 10 year period is classified as a felony office.

A felony DUI conviction will have an even greater impact, however, as it can be penalized by:

  • One to five years behind bars
  • $1000 to $5000 fines
  • Mandatory ignition interlock device – with applicable monthly taxes
  • Permanent license suspension
  • DUI alcohol or drug use Risk Reduction Program
  • Minimum of 60 days community service
