Felony DUI Charges

What is a felony DUI?

In the states of Kansas or Missouri, a charge for driving under the influence ( DUI) becomes a felony offense upon the third drunk driving offense. Any subsequent DUI offenses are also felonies. The differences between a regular DUI and a felony DUI include the possibility of a prison term in Missouri instead of a jail sentence, higher fines, and a more-severe mark on your criminal record. The basic penalties for felony DUIs are:

In Kansas

Third Offense:

  • Jail minimum of 90 days and maximum of 1 year
  • Fine no less than $1750
  • License suspension

Fourth Offense:

  • Jail maximum of 1 year
  • License suspension

In Missouri

Third DUI Offense:

  • 120 days – 4 years in prison
  • Fine
  • License Suspension

Fourth or Subsequent DUI Offense:

  • Up to 7 years in Prison
  • Fine
  • License Suspension
