When is a DUI a Felony in Georgia?

A DUI may be charged as a felony under any of the following circumstances:

  • The intoxicated driver causes serious injury or death to another person
  • The accused is facing their fourth offense within 10 years
  • The accused driver flees the scene of the accident or attempts to evade police
  • The driver was transporting a minor while under the influence
  • The accused was driving with a blood alcohol concentration well over the legal limit

A felony DUI conviction can result in a myriad of severe criminal and administrative penalties, including an extended license suspension or revocation period, up to five years in state prison, up to $5,000 in fines, community service, installation of an ignition interlock device, restitution to injured parties, and mandatory substance abuse treatment. In addition, a felony criminal conviction can permanently damage a person's reputation, creating difficulty when applying for jobs, finding housing, or obtaining professional licenses. Convicted felons are also prohibited from voting or owning firearms.
