There are two types of felony DWIs: driving while intoxicated with a child passenger and habitual offenders.
Child passenger: You can be charged with a state jail felony if suspected while driving while intoxicated and you have a passenger younger than 15 years of age. This can mean up to two years in a state jail facility.
Habitual offenders: You will be charged with a third degree felony if arrested for driving while intoxicated and have two or more previous DWI convictions. This can mean 2-10 years in the penitentiary and a fine up to $4,000.
With such high stakes at risk, it is important to hire an attorney who can protect you on all fronts - we immediately review the police officer's information in your case to determine whether there was legal authority to stop or arrest you. We then evaluate the videotape of your field sobriety tests from multiple perspectives - from how we think a jury would evaluate your performance to whether your tests were conducted in accordance with the standards required by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
