Felony DWI (driving while intoxicated) charges are extremely serious and can impact every area of your life. A common misconception is that all charges are the same. However, the consequences change depending on the severity of the injuries caused, the extent of property damages the number of times you’ve committed the offense and the number of casualties. Where a misdemeanor is usually harsh, it is often reserved for first- or second-time offenders. A felony DWI charge is far more severe than a misdemeanor and penalties can include:
- Longer jail sentences – Up to 20 years.
- Heavier fines – Up to $10,000.
- Extended driver’s license suspensions.
Additionally, the stigma of being convicted of a felony DWI will likely impact your current and future employment and attract unwanted media attention.
