Felony DUI Charges Giving You a Fighting Chance

Rhode Island Felony DUI Lawyer

Trusted RI DUI Defense Attorney

Any DUI charge can jeopardize your future and cost you in terms of jail time and fines. While your first two DUIs are considered misdemeanors which come with no more than one year in jail, a felony DUI conviction will carry much more severe consequences. No matter why you have been charged with felony DUI, take charge of your case by entrusting it to a skilled Rhode Island DUI defense attorney from The Law Office of Thomas C. Thomasian, Esq.

Rhode Island DUI attorney Tom Thomasian and the firm understand what a DUI charge means and how they can be beaten. He is so experienced in DUI law, he is a member of the National College for DUI Defense®. Tom makes himself available to his clients 24/7 because he knows when you are charged with such a serious offense you will most likely have many questions and concerns. Tom works to provide all the support and advice clients need when facing criminal charges.

What penalties do you face if convicted of a felony DUI?

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.

  • A conviction can carry:
  • $400 in fines
  • 1 to 3 years in jail
  • Licenses suspension of 2 to 3 years
  • Mandatory installation of an Ignition Interlock Device for up to two years following your sentence

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.

Get Reliable Defense for Your Case

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.
