Criminal Classifications of DUI Charges

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol charges can vary based on the circumstances of your crime. Most DUI charges are misdemeanors. However, extreme cases that are particularly dangerous or cause serious injuries can be elevated to a Class 6 felony. This means DUI charges are known as a “wobbler” crime.

Penalties for a DUI conviction could include:

· Jail time

· Large fines

· Victim restitution

· Administrative license revocation

· Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device

· Alcohol education class completion

· Civil forfeiture of your vehicle (felony convictions only)

Repeat offenders also face stiffer penalties. For a second offense within five years, you could face an increased fine and a longer jail sentence (including a mandatory minimum sentence). Third-time offenders within a 10-year period are automatically charged with felony DUI.
