When Does DUI Become a Felony in California?

Ultimately, the state reserves the right to charge DUIs as felonies. This type of charge carries a stricter sentence and brands you as a felon. This makes hiring experienced legal representation imperative.

Any DUI can be charged as a felony depending on the circumstances of the case. This is established in California Vehicle Code 23135.

In California, a DUI is charged as a felony when:

  • The DUI causes serious injury or death to another person
  • It is your fourth DUI conviction in California in a 10-year period
  • You have one or more prior DUI felony convictions

Ultimately, the prosecutor will have some discretion with how they charge you. A good felony DUI defense attorney from our Bakersfield law firm can formulate defense strategies that will benefit your case.
