Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A. - Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense Lawyer

Felony DUI? Many people don’t realize how serious this is.

While all DUI charges are serious, a felony/aggravated DUI is far worse than a misdemeanor DUI. If you or a loved one is facing felony DUI charges, you must act quickly to protect your rights and your freedom.

There are several reasons you can be charged with felony DUI, including:

Prior DUI offenses – Have you been charged with DUI before? With each subsequent offense, the charges and penalties increase. Felony charges can be brought if it is your third offense within 10 years or if it is a fourth or higher offense.

Accidents and injuries – Are you accused of causing an accident or injuring someone while driving under the influence? You could be charged with felony DUI. It’s possible to face DUI manslaughter charges if someone died in the accident.

Aggravating factors – Whether it is a first-time DUI or a subsequent offense, aggravating factors can result in felony DUI charges. Was there a minor child in the car at the time of the arrest? Was your blood alcohol level 0.15 percent or higher? The prosecutor may seek felony DUI charges in these cases.

A conviction for felony DUI will likely result in a prison sentence as well as thousands of dollars in fines. In addition, the judge will order that you have ignition interlock devices installed on your vehicles for a minimum of two years.

Your future may depend on what you steps you take now. It is advisable to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.
