Aggravated DUI

Aggravated DUI Lawyer

 

There are four typical reasons for a DUI/DWI charge to become an “aggravated” DUI charge.  The first reason is if the DWI charge occurs while the individual’s driver’s license is suspended. The second is when there is a person 15 years old or younger in the vehicle at the time of the DWI. Your DUI charge will also become an aggravated DUI if you received a DUI while you had an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. And finally, the DUI/DWI charge can become “aggravated” if the individual has had two other DUIs within the past seven years.

 

Felony classifications for each of the above are as follows:

  • DUI while license was suspended or revoked: class 4 felony
  • Minor under 15 years of age in the car at the time of the DUI: class 6 felony
  • DUI while vehicle had an ignition interlock device: class 4 felony
  • Two or more prior DUIs within seven years: class 4 felony
