Olathe Felony DUI Lawyer

Consequences of a Felony DUI Offense

While DUI offenses in Kansas are serious from the very first, there is no doubt that the consequences and severity is only compounded with each following one. If you have previously been charged with two DUIs and are charged with a third, you will no longer be facing a misdemeanor. Instead, for the first DUI and on, the crime is considered a felony and will be tried as such. Taken out of a municipal court, the trial will be seen at a district court on a state level. Here, prosecution will be aggressive and ruthless - the penalties exponentially more severe.

If you are successfully convicted of a felony DUI in Johnson County, you will likely have a difficult time keeping your job or finding new employment in the future. The criminal record will cripple you for life, hindering you in almost every decision you can imagine, from attempting to secure a loan to furthering your education. Punishment will also be considerably harsher, with the possibility of fines ranging from $1,500 to $2,500, imprisonment from 90 days up to a year, and the possibility of your driving privileges being permanently revoked (if you reach five or more offenses). If you are facing consequences such as this, do not waste any time; you need the legal assistance of an Olathe criminal attorney as quickly as you can.
