What constitutes a felony DUI and what are the consequences?

DUI charges can, without a doubt, be difficult to manage. Impaired driving simply is taken very seriously, whether you live in South Carolina or elsewhere. Of all the DUI related offenses, those that garner felony DUI charges are the most complex to successfully fight in court, but that doesn't mean it is impossible to do.

Felony DUI charges are filed if a person is found to have been operating a vehicle while under the influence of an impairing substance, if they do something against the law while driving impaired and if they cause harm to another individual in the process. Other complications surrounding a DUI incident may be taken into consideration. Some of these complications can be viewed on our Felony DUI page.

The potential consequences of a felony DUI charge are significant and can have a dramatic impact on a person's life. These consequences include fines, imprisonment, court order rehabilitation, community service and much more. Each of these penalties can greatly affect both a person's family and professional life, so defending oneself is imperative.

Understandably, felony DUI cases can be complicated to maneuver. As with any DUI offense, reviewing evidence offered against the accused, including conducting a thorough evaluation of the circumstances surrounding an arrest, may bring to light important details that may be of benefit in court. With so much on the line, having an attorney who has experience and knowledge of South Carolina DUI laws will likely prove to be a valuable commodity.
