What to Do When Facing Felony DUI Charges

Being arrested for or charged with a felony DUI is an extremely serious situation. In the state of Georgia, most DUI charges are classified as misdemeanors, but DUI can be charged as a felony under certain circumstances.

You can be charged with felony DUI if:

  • You have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) significantly above the .08% legal limit
  • You cause an accident that results in serious injuries or death to another
  • You have committed multiple DUIs and are facing your fourth DUI offense in 10 years

Under Georgia House Bill 336, which was enacted in May of 2008, a fourth DUI violation within 10 years is classified as a felony offense.

If convicted of felony DUI, you could be:

  • Fined between $1,000 and $5,000
  • Sentenced to prison for between 1 and 5 years (with a 90-day minimum sentence)
  • Required to complete a DUI alcohol or drug use risk reduction program
  • Required to complete a minimum of 60 days of community service
