Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs in California is generally a misdemeanor crime. Provided that there are no facts that tend to exacerbate the severity of the case (i.e., “aggravating factors”), you will probably face a misdemeanor “simple DUI” charge when facing your first DUI case, second DUI case, or third time DUI case. However, there are situations where an otherwise “simple DUI” in California will incur a felony charge. If you are being charged with felony DUI and need an West Covina criminal defense attorney to represent you, turn to our team at Coimbra Law Firm.
There are various ways in which an otherwise misdemeanor DUI can turn into a felony criminal DUI filing. It is important that you act quickly to hire legal defense, as a felony DUI conviction has egregious repercussions that include county jail imprisonment or incarceration, steep fines and fees, and the revocation of your driver’s license or driving privilege in California for many years to come. A felony DUI conviction will have long-lasting and destructive consequences unless an experienced and effective West Covina DUI defense attorney represents you and beats the case.
