Bakersfield Felony DUI Attorney
Serious DUI Charges Require Serious Representation
Felony DUI is a very serious charge. Generally speaking, the first time an individual is charged with a DUI it is classed as a misdemeanor. There are, however, several factors which could result in a more serious classification. Multiple DUI convictions, for example, or the injury or death of another party, is likely to result in a felony DUI charge. A conviction in these cases can have a grave effect on your future and your reputation.
There are several possible repercussions awaiting a felony conviction, including:
- Prison time
- Mandated treatment programs
If your accident results in a fatality, you could also be charged with vehicular manslaughter.
A felony DUI conviction could land you in state prison. When your future and freedom are on the line, contact a Bakersfield DUI attorney at Brehmer Law Corporation for the help you need.
