For some individuals, the circumstances of their lives make facing DUI charges a repeat issue. As an individual continues to be pulled over, charged with and convicted of DUIs, the consequences become more severe. That is because DUIs are considered “enhanceable crimes” meaning the charges become more serious the more times an individual is charged.
If you or a loved one has been repeatedly pulled over for a DUI, whether it involves drunk driving or the consumption of controlled substances, make sure to secure experienced legal representation from a Salt Lake City felony DUI defense attorney. The Law Offices of David Paul White and Associates can give you the aggressive defense you need in these serious felony cases.
What Kinds Of Penalties Can I Face For a Felony DUI Charge?
A charge will become a felony DUI if:
- It is an individual’s third DUI charge within 10 years
- An individual was previously convicted of a felony DUI
- The DUI incident resulted in a serious injury for another person
- The individual charged was previously convicted of vehicular homicide
The consequences for a felony DUI, as you can imagine, are as serious as the charges. High-dollar fines, incarceration, long-term or permanent revocation of a driver’s license are just the beginning. Securing representation from an experienced lawyer can help you protect yourself for years to come.
