Misdemeanor & Felony Attorney Walnut Creek CA
Most DUIs are charged as misdemeanors. If this is your first, second, or even third offense then your case is most likely filed as a misdemeanor. A DUI can be charged as a felony though – most frequently if a person has three or more prior DUIs in the past ten years or if there was in injury as a result of the driving.
Felony DUIs can carry severe consequences including prison time. The maximum penalty for a typical felony DUI is a prison sentence of 3 years. Most times, however, Thomas Daly’s clients will not serve any actual prison time. Thanks to sentencing laws and Thomas’ application of them to his cases most clients serve, at most: jail time and a probation period. If you are charged with a felony DUI you should get representation as soon as possible. Call Thomas at (925) 338-7517 for a free consultation.
