Rockford IL Felony DUI Attorney

Illinois Felony DUI Definition

While even your second DUI conviction will only be charged as a misdemeanor, which still comes with serious penalties, if certain aggravating factors are present in your DUI arrest, your charge could be upgraded to a felony. This could mean even worse penalties, including well over a year spent in prison, on top of other consequences which could seriously jeopardize your future.

Aggravating factors for a drunk driving arrest include:

  • Driving without car insurance
  • Causing serious injury to another person
  • Getting a second DUI while transporting someone under 16 years of age
  • Driving without a driver’s license
  • Driving while your license is suspended or revoked
