Misdemeanor and Felony DUI

Posted on:2/24/2013
A DUI charge should not be taken lightly. Unlike a traffic ticket which can be paid off and forgotten, a DUI charge is a criminal offense. Seek the assistance of an experienced DUI attorney.


Generally if it is your first DUI offense, it will be considered a misdemeanor offense. Misdemeanor offenses are punishable with a fine and/or a jail term of less than a year. A conviction for a misdemeanor DUI can have serious repercussions. Even if it is the first time you have been charged with DUI, you should fight the charges against you with the help of a seasoned DUI attorney.

 

A first time DUI offense can be charged as a felony offense. For example, if your blood alcohol concentration is 0.08% or more and you are involved in a collision, you can be charged with a  felony DUI. A felony DUI is also referred to as an aggravated DUI in some states. You can also be charged with a felony DUI if your blood alcohol concentration is way above the legal limit. The legal blood alcohol concentration limit across the United States is 0.08%. A felony DUI conviction can adversely affect your life for years to come. A experienced DUI attorney can help you fight the felony DUI charge.

 

A felony offense is one that is punishable with a jail term in excess of one year. Besides the jail term, you can also be subject to hefty fines. An experienced DUI attorney is your best chance of fighting a felony DUI charge.
