Birmingham Felony DUI Attorneys
The state of Alabama has stepped up its prosecution of repeat and felony DUI offenders. Potential penalties are stiff and long lasting in these cases, and you stand to lose significantly without skilled representation.
Alabama Felony Drunk Driving Defense Lawyers
Many times, DUI charges are accelerated to felony DUI charges for repeat offenders, but there are other circumstances that can cause the charges to be elevated to felony. These include:
- Two or more prior DUI convictions
- A DUI arrest occurring while driving on a suspended or revoked license or no valid insurance
- A DUI arrest occurring while driving a school bus, carrying minors
- A DUI charge in conjunction with an accident causing bodily harm or disability
- Prior conviction of reckless homicide
- A DUI arrest occurring in a school zone
There are also enhanced penalties if you are found to be driving with a BAC of greater than .18. These charges are considered aggravated DUI and prosecuted accordingly.
Fines For Felony DUI Convictions
Felony DUI charges are significant and carry harsh penalties, including fines and jail time. Additionally, in 2012 Alabama passed a statute requiring felony DUI offenders to have an Ignition Interlock device installed on their vehicle for a period of five years once their driving privileges are restored.
There is a lot on the line, and you need staunch defense. It is important that you contact a veteran team of attorneys immediately following a DUI arrest, particularly if there are extenuating circumstances that can cause the charges to be raised.
Just because you have been arrested and charged does not mean that your case is already decided. There are possible defenses.
