Typically, DUI is a misdemeanor charge. A felony DUI charge can be brought when a death or significant injury has resulted from a drunk driving accident. If you had three prior DUI convictions, or a prior felony DUI conviction, you might also be facing a felony charge.
You face license suspension also, and I handle this aspect of your case as well. A DMV hearing must be requested within 10 days of your arrest.
Certain cases can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor. That is why it is so important to hire an attorney who focuses on criminal defense. I have been handling these cases for more than 35 years. I know the likelihood of negotiating down the charges and potential penalties.
In cases where there is a provable case against you, my strategy is to minimize the sentence and avoid jail time.
