Aggravated DUI Charges in Virginia

Call a Richmond Hill DUI Attorney For Help Now!

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is illegal in the state of Virginia, but particularly extreme or egregious cases can be penalized heavier by being elevated to felony status. A regular DUI is a misdemeanor offense, but in particularly serious cases, you could find yourself facing extremely serious consequences that may impact you for the rest of your life.

You may be charged for an aggravated DUI if:

· You are convicted of a DUI for the third time within 10 years

· Your blood alcohol content is beyond .15%

· You transport a minor by driving while intoxicated

· You cause property damage, injury, or death by driving while intoxicated

The state of Virginia takes these cases extremely seriously, and it’s not uncommon for prosecutors to seek the maximum possible penalties, especially when an injury or fatality is involved. This means you should immediately contact a Richmond Hill DUI lawyer for assistance.

Sever Felony DUI Penalties

Virginia DUI penalties are already amongst the toughest in the country, and being convicted of a felony DUI makes them even tougher. Because so many of these penalties are automatic upon conviction, you cannot afford to try to face your charges on your own.

In addition to the normal DUI penalties, a felony DUI charge can include:

· Mandatory jail sentence between 90 days and six months

· Possible probation

· Minimum $1,000 fine

· Indefinite license revocation

· Mandatory alcohol safety program completion

· Possible 90-day vehicle seizure and forfeiture

In addition, because these charges are a Class 6 felony in Virginia, you could face additional consequences, such as restrictions on your ability to seek employment or housing. You will also potentially lose other rights and privileges, which can seriously restrict your ability to live happily.
