Felony DUI Defense Lawyer
If you are arrested for a DUI without any other additional charges, it is usually charged as a misdemeanor for the first through third convictions. But if you have three prior DUI convictions or if there are additional and more serious charges against you the charge will most likely be for a felony DUI. The penalties for a felony conviction are much more serious and can result in up to three years in prison and the DMV may suspended your license for years or even revoked. Due to the seriousness of a felony DUI charge you should speak to a Sacramento DUI defense attorney at the Tiemann Law Office to be advised of your rights and what your legal options are.
As with any DUI charge it will be important for your attorney to be knowledgeable in the complex DUI laws of California and experienced in successfully defending DUI cases. Our lawyers are both certified as DUI defense attorneys but also have specialized training in the science and technology of Breathalyzer and blood alcohol tests. We are experienced in successfully challenging the results of your BAC and standardized field sobriety tests (SFSTs). We will review all the evidence and testimony of your arrest and provide you with an aggressive and comprehensive defense.
Felony DUI Defense Attorney in Sacramento
Some of the aggravating factors that will provoke a felony DUI charge are:
- You have three prior DUI convictions within the last 10 years
- You have had another DUI felony conviction
- Someone was injured or killed while you were driving drunk
You will be able to request a DMV Hearing to prevent your driver's license from being automatically suspended 30 days after your arrest but this can be difficult to do with your prior record as part of the evidence that will be presented to the DMV agent reviewing your case. We are dedicated to protection your rights including your right to an attorney and to providing you with an aggressive and thoroughly prepared defense.
