Felony DUI in California
A fourth DUI in California is considered a felony offense in California, as opposed to a misdemeanor, which is the case for first, second, and third DUI offenses. A conviction can result in a 16-month jail sentence to 3 years in state prison, a maximum fine of $1,000, and driver's license revocation for 4 years.
If the DUI results in someone suffering "serious bodily injury," which is defined as a significant or substantial physical injury, the offense can be charged as a felony. Felony DUI with injury is punishable by imprisonment in a California state prison for 16 months, 2 years, or 3 years, fines ranging from $1,015 to $5,000 (excluding additional penalties and fees), and driver's license revocation for 5 years.
Lastly, if the DUI results in another person's death, you could be charged with gross vehicular manslaughter. This felony conviction carries a prison sentence of 4, 6, or 10 years, a fine of up to $10,000, and driver's license revocation for 5 years.
