Understanding Aggravated DUI Charges

You may be charged with aggravated DUI if:

  • You caused an accident and subsequent injury while drunk driving
  • If you have prior DUI convictions

Every DUI conviction is priorable for up to 10 years. A fourth DUI in 10 years is considered a felony. While a misdemeanor DUI conviction may land you in jail, individuals who are charged with felony DUI may be facing significant time in state prison.
