WHAT TURNS A DUI INTO A FELONY?
Whether your case is related to personal injury or a DUI, you should know there are several ways in Georgia in which a DUI can be raised from a misdemeanor to a felony. Many individuals in Georgia who are stopped on the suspicion of driving under the influence will be charged with a misdemeanor. If one of the following occurs, however, that person could end up facing a felony DUI charge instead.

CAUSING DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY
If a driver who is operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol causes an accident that results in serious injury or death, the driver can expect to face a felony charge. In these situations, it does not matter if the driver has had a previous driving offense. The penalties that a driver can face if someone is injured or killed in an accident are particularly severe.
DRIVERS WHO ARE CONSIDERED HIGH-RISK OPERATORS
Some drivers have jobs that require them to take care of the safety of others. School bus drivers, for example, fall into this category. In Georgia, high-risk operators who drink and drive can face several years in prison.
INGREDIENTS • 8 chicken thighs or
• 1 lb potatoes, peeled and cut in large chunks • 2 garlic cloves, sliced • 14 oz chicken stock • 1 sprig rosemary • Finely grated zest and juice of 1/2 lemon • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
drumsticks, lightly salted
• 1 tbsp olive oil • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour • 1 onion, finely sliced • 2 celery sticks, thickly sliced • 2 carrots, thickly sliced • 1 leek, thickly sliced
DRIVERS WITH MULTIPLE OFFENSES
Georgia law includes a time window with elevated penalties for drivers who have been convicted of a DUI. The more convictions that a person has, the more serious the penalties they can end up facing. If a Georgia driver has a previous DUI conviction within the last 10 years, then he or she can expect to receive serious penalties upon conviction of another DUI. Being convicted of a felony DUI in Georgia can result in numerous complications that can forever change a person’s life. In addition to potentially spending years in prison, drivers convicted of felony DUIs pay thousands of dollars in fines and often encounter problems in obtaining housing, loans, or employment.
