Felony DUI – Understanding the Consequences
If you are convicted of a felony repeat DUI you face substantial fines, jail time, and the loss or revocation of your driver’s license. If your driver’s license is reinstated, you will likely be required to purchase and install an ignition interlock device (IID) on your car. An IID works like a Breathalyzer, measuring your blood alcohol content before you drive and while you are driving. Your car will not start unless you blow into the IID and register a blood alcohol level of .05% or lower. As you drive, you are required to periodically blow into the device.
If your job requires you to drive their company car or vehicle, you must obtain a “P” restriction driver’s license and a letter of permission from your employer allowing you to drive their car without an ignition interlock device. Additionally, a felony DUI conviction will go on your permanent record, making it difficult for you to either keep your current job or find a new one.
