Is a 2nd DUI a Felony in California?

Merely being arrested in California for a second DUI will not make that 2nd DUI a Felony.  For a 2nd DUI to be considered a felony, the following must occur.

1.  Prior DUI was a Felony, even if the prior was over 10 years ago.

2.  During your 2nd DUI, you caused an accident where the victim suffered from great bodily injury.

3.  During your 2nd DUI, a individual was killed.

4. During your 2nd DUI, you had illegal drugs in your vehicle, children in your vehicle, or you fled the scene and you’re being charged with Felony Hit and Run.  All though this doesn’t technically make your second DUI a felony in California, these are additional felony charges sometimes associated with a DUI.

House Arrest Sounds Great!  Where Do I Sign Up?
