DUI Felony

A felony DUI is one that can be punished by 0 to 5 years in state prison. In Utah, drivers can be charged with felony DUI if:

  • The driver has had 3 previous DUI offenses within 10 years
  • The driver has been previously convicted for felony drunk driving
  • The driver injured someone in a DUI car accident
  • The driver has previously been convicted of vehicular homicide.
  • The driver injures someone and has drugs in their blood stream.

The penalties for a felony DUI depend on the details of the case. Generally speaking, a judge can sentence a felony DUI offender to up to 5 years in prison, in addition to various fines, community service, rehabilitation, probation, etc. Obviously, a driver involved in a DUI accident that injured or killed another person is going to receive the higher tail end of that scale.
