Misdemeanor DUI

Misdemeanor DUI Defense Lawyers

Almost all DUIs in California are misdemeanors. There are of course, some exceptions where a DUI may be charged as a felony, such as a case where someone is injured or the driver has three prior convictions in the last 10 years. Generally, misdemeanors are viewed as less serious crimes and carry lower penalties than felony convictions. More importantly, on misdemeanors most (if not all), of the jail time can be substituted for alternatives or treatment.

When arrested for a DUI, one of the first questions people who have never been in trouble often ask is, “Is a DUI a felony?” In most cases, people arrested for driving under the influence are not charged with a felony DUI. Most DUI's, even though they are traffic offenses, are considered misdemeanors. However, in California, there are three main situations in which the district attorney might choose to charge someone with a Felony DUI.
