Defense against Felony DUI Charges in Camarillo and Oxnard
There are three main ways that a person can charged with felony DUI:
DUI with Injury
: This is the principal way. If there is injury the prosecutor may charge you with felony DUI. The potential penalty is 2 to 4 years. If there is "great bodily injury" the penalty may be enhanced from 3 to 6 years additional. The prosecutor must prove you were (1) DUI, (2) negligent or in violation of the law in a way other than being DUI and (3) your negligence caused the accident. You attorney may challenge the charge on any of the three points. Perhaps the DUI charge is faulty. The police may have violated procedures in the drug or alcohol screening. Perhaps it can be shown that you were driving properly in the accident. Perhaps it can be established that the other party caused the accident and not you.
- Fourth DUI: This is another way a felony DUI can be charged. Your attorney can check to see if the first three properly on the record. Perhaps one of them is over ten years old and should not count.
- Previous Felony DUI: If you have a previous felony DUI, all DUIs after that can also be charged as felony DUI. This is a tough rule. Your attorney can investigate the circumstances of the prior felony DUI and appeal to the prosecutor to reduce the charge in the interest of fairness.
