There are more than one means of being charged with a felony DUI. One way is to be charged with your third DUI within 5 years of the previous one and your blood alcohol content was between 0.08 and 0.15 percent.
You can also be charged with felony DUI if your intoxicated driving resulted directly in an accident which caused the death of someone else. A conviction for such an offense can come with 5 to 15 years in jail, $5,000 to $10,000 in fines, and a revocation of your driver’s license for up to 5 years.
Even in the face of serious charges such as felony DUI, you are innocent until proven guilty. Equipment used to test for DUI are not perfect and they can be challenged in court by a knowledgeable Rhode Island DUI attorney.
Even if you were involved in a fatal accident, if it can be established that the deceased party was partly responsible for the accident, you will likely be unable to be charged with felony DUI.
