What is a felony DUI?

If you have been arrested in California for driving under the influence of alcohol, you may be facing misdemeanor or felony charges. Misdemeanors generally carry more lenient penalties than felonies because they are considered less severe crimes. According to the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps, a DUI is generally a felony if you have been convicted of driving under the influence three times before or if during the incident someone was injured or killed. This means that not all felony DUIs will involve injures or accidents.
