What is a felony DUI?

If you are driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and you are involved in an auto accident in which someone is injured, you may be charged with a felony DUI. Vehicular manslaughter can also lead to a felony DUI, if you caused the death of another because of drunk driving. In the case of a fourth DUI arrest, you may also be charged with a felony DUI. The penalties for a felony DUI are much harsher than for misdemeanors. A fourth DUI conviction may result in up to 3 years in a state prison and a license suspension of up to 4 years. A DUI with injury carries a maximum sentence of up to 6 years in prison if the victim's bodily harm was great. Vehicular manslaughter, charged as a felony, carries a sentence of up to 4 years in prison and, in the case of gross negligence, up to 10 years in a state prison. If convicted of any of these, you will have a criminal record as a felon, which can negatively affect your future.
