When Does A DWI Become a Felony?
An arrest for DWI may result in a felony charge, depending on the facts
of your case and your criminal record. If you have been convicted of a
DWI offense within the past ten years, any new DWI arrest will result
in a felony DWI charge, as opposed to the misdemeanor DWI charge that
would result from a first offense.
In addition, you may be charged with felony DWI if you operated a motor
vehicle while intoxicated and there was a child in the vehicle. If you
are charged with a felony DWI, it is vital that you contact an experienced
DWI attorney as soon as possible, as the potential penalties increase
significantly. The consequences of a felony DWI conviction include a potential
prison sentence, extensive periods of probation, and significant fines.
DWIs are charged as felonies if you meet certain criteria, including:
- Within the past 10 years, you were convicted of a DWI-related offense,
including vehicular manslaughter, DWI, aggravated DWI, DWAI by drugs or
- You are charged with a DWI related offense while a passenger fifteen years
