Felony DUI Is The Most Serious Of Charges Related To Driving Under The Influence

Last updated on May 30, 2024

In Florida, a DUI becomes a felony with severe consequences if it involves severe injury, death or repeated drunk driving offenses. For example, seriously injuring someone in a DUI vehicle accident will likely be charged as a felony.

Unlike misdemeanors, felonies carry much harsher penalties, including longer jail terms and costlier fines. You could face lengthy imprisonment and lose your driving privileges if convicted of felony DUI.

Live Out Of State And Charged With A DWI / DUI While Traveling In Florida?

Can A Felony DUI Be Reduced To A Misdemeanor?

A plea bargain may also be possible. An experienced DUI attorney can guide you through the process and negotiate with prosecutors on your behalf. At the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey, we take the extra step of meticulously reviewing proposed deals to ensure they truly serve your best interests.
