Is DUI a Felony in California?

In California, a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the circumstances of the offense. A first and second DUI offense is usually charged as a misdemeanor. Still, a third or subsequent DUI offense within ten years of a prior DUI conviction is generally charged as a felony. Additionally, certain circumstances lead to felony charges. These can include Fourth offenses, causing personal injury to another human being, and child endangerment.

What are the Penalties for a Felony DUI in California?

The penalties for a felony DUI can vary depending on your case's circumstances. It’s important to note, however, that DUIs in California are considered “priorable” offenses, which means the penalties for a DUI can increase in severity if the DUI arrest takes place within a 10-year period of a previous DUI conviction.

Felony DUI may lead to the following penalties:

  • Up to 3 years in state prison
  • Up to $1,000 in fines
  • Driver’s licenses suspension for 4 years
  • Up to 30 months of DUI school
