Ventura Felony DUI Attorney

Overcoming DUI Felony Charges in California

Being arrested for a DUI can easily deflate your spirits and fill you with an unshakeable sense of dread and hopelessness. However, just because you have been charged does not mean you will be convicted. Our defense lawyers have represented Ventura clients for over ten years.

Can You Expunge a Felony DUI in California?

Yes, the option for an expungement for a felony DUI is available to anyone in California. However, there are specific requirements and conditions to meet before applying for expungement relief. For example, not all DUI convictions are eligible for expungement, with the requisite condition being that no time served in state prison.

At Wilfert Law, PC, we offer assistance from a former police officer and former DUI prosecutor. We have the knowledge, skills, and experience to get your charges reduced or even dismissed. For the best chance at beating your case, it is imperative that we act fast. Contact us today to get started.

When Is DUI a Felony?

In most circumstances, California DUIs are charged as misdemeanors. However, certain aspects of the case and your record can increase the charges to a felony. Your DUI could become a felony if:

  • You caused someone to be seriously injured
  • You caused someone to be killed
  • You have three or more DUIs within the past 10 years
  • You have a prior DUI felony charge

If any of the above criteria applies to your case, our lawyers can investigate your DUI felony charge and fight for a better outcome.

Penalties for Felony DUI Convictions in California

In California, felony DUI convictions carry severe penalties. If you are being charged with a felony for the injury or death of another while driving under the influence, you could face:

  • Fines up to $5,000
  • A California state prison sentence between 16 months and 16 years
  • License suspension for 5 years
  • DUI school

If you did not harm or kill anyone as a result of your DUI, you can see some relief in your penalties. If your felony DUI charge is the result of prior DUI convictions, you will face:

  • Fines up to $1,000
  • A California state prison sentence of up to 3 years
  • License suspension for 4 years
  • DUI school

Whatever the cause of your felony DUI, the consequences can be severe. If you are being charged with a felony, we encourage you to take action by speaking with our firm. In serious felony DUI cases, plea bargaining is prohibited, meaning other avenues of defense must be pursued. Our attorneys can help you identify and pursue other ways of fighting your case.
