Multiple DUI A New Approach to Legal representation

Multiple Offense DUI Attorney in Birmingham

DUI convictions carry heavier and more severe penalties for those who have previously been convicted. Repeat offenders are often required to go through many of the same steps that they went through for their first conviction and potentially for even longer. Likewise, prosecutors are also more likely to recommend heavier sentences in the case of a repeat DUI offender—especially if the offense happens shortly after a previous one.

Felony DUI Charges in Alabama

Most of the time, DUI charges are considered a misdemeanor in Alabama. However, in rare circumstances, DUI could be charged as a felony. If a DUI involves severe bodily injury or death, or the offender is facing their fourth DUI charge within the last 10 years, the charges will be upgraded to a Class C felony, carrying incredibly harsh penalties.

Felony DUI convictions could include the following: 

  • A minimum prison sentence of one year and one day up to 10 years
  • A fine of up to $10,100
  • A five-year driver’s license suspension

In addition to the penalties above, a felony conviction remains on your criminal record for life, and that means you may forfeit certain civil rights and privileges as a result. Those with a convicted felony on their record lose their right to vote, their right to firearm ownership, and the right to pursue employment in a number of different industries or positions. 

With so much on the line and little time to take action, do not hesitate to reach out to a skilled and experienced attorney for assistance with your case.
