When is a DUI a Felony in Wisconsin?

In Wisconsin, certain circumstances can elevate a DUI to a felony offense. Here are some situations in which a DUI can be classified as a felony in Wisconsin:

  • Fifth Offense DUI: A fifth DUI in Wisconsin or higher is automatically charged as a felony, meaning that you will permanently lose your right to possess a firearm if you are convicted.
  • Fourth Offense DUI: A fourth offense within five years is classified as a Class H felony in Wisconsin.
  • DUI Causing Injury: If a DUI results in great bodily harm to another person, it can be charged as a felony offense.
  • Homicide by Intoxicated Use of a Vehicle: If a DUI accident leads to the death of another person, it can be charged as a felony offense, such as vehicular homicide or negligent homicide.
  • Prior Felony DUI Convictions: If an individual has previously been convicted of a felony DUI, subsequent DUI offenses can be charged as felonies.

It's important to note that Wisconsin's DUI laws and penalties can be complex, and specific circumstances of each case can affect the classification and severity of the charges. Consulting with an experienced Wisconsin DUI attorney is essential to understand the potential felony DUI charges and the corresponding legal consequences.

What are the Penalties for a Felony DUI in Wisconsin?

In Wisconsin, the penalties for a felony DUI conviction can vary depending on the case's specific circumstances, the number of prior convictions, and other factors. Here are the general penalties for a felony DUI in Wisconsin:

  • Incarceration: Felony DUI convictions typically involve mandatory incarceration. The length of imprisonment can vary depending on the specific felony classification and the number of prior DUI offenses.
  • Fines: Felony DUI convictions can result in significant fines ranging from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.
  • License Suspension/Revocation: A felony DUI conviction can lead to suspending or revoking the offender's driver's license. The length of the suspension/revocation can vary depending on the specific circumstances and prior convictions.
  • Ignition Interlock Device (IID): In many cases, individuals convicted of felony DUI must install an IID in their vehicle. This device measures the driver's breath alcohol concentration and prevents the vehicle from starting if alcohol is detected.
  • Probation: Felony DUI convictions may also include a period of probation, during which the offender must comply with specific conditions set by the court. These conditions may include regular check-ins with a probation officer, maintaining sobriety, attending mandatory counseling or treatment programs, submitting to drug or alcohol testing, and refraining from committing additional criminal offenses.
  • Mandatory Alcohol or Drug Treatment: As part of the penalty, individuals convicted of a felony DUI may be required to undergo mandatory alcohol or drug treatment programs. This can include attending counseling sessions, completing rehabilitation programs, or participating in support groups.
  • Vehicle Impoundment or Forfeiture: In some cases, the offender's vehicle may be subject to impoundment or forfeiture due to a felony DUI conviction. This means that the vehicle may be taken away and sold or destroyed.
  • Criminal Record: A felony DUI conviction will result in a permanent criminal record. This can have long-term consequences, impacting employment opportunities, professional licenses, housing applications, and other aspects of life.

It is important to note that the penalties for a felony DUI in Wisconsin can vary depending on the specific circumstances, prior convictions, and other factors. Consulting with an experienced Wisconsin DUI attorney is crucial to understand the potential penalties and developing a strong defense strategy.
