Usually DUI’s are misdemeanors, but there is one other classification that has harsher penalties. “Wobblers” are offenses that can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, but it is usually charged as a felony based on the factors. If injuries especially deaths were involved to someone other than the driver, or if you have been charged with any previous felonies or if this is the fourth DUI within ten years, you will be charged with a felony.
The consequences of a felony DUI vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and can include (1) 1 to 3 years in a state prison, (2) mandated court-approved alcohol and/or drunk education program, (3) court fines and penalties, (4) restitution penalties to the injured party, (5) 4 to 10 years of driver’s license suspension.
When deaths are involved, the crime can either be vehicular homicide, manslaughter, or second-degree murder. Factors complicate the conviction because the district attorneys have their own standard for determining the level of injury, the negligence or the implied malice for the death.
