Don't Get Stuck with a Felony Charge
Nevada state DUI laws are notoriously harsh. If you are convicted, that felony stays with you forever. Our attorney is a former prosecutor and lecturer on DUI laws for the Nevada State Bar Association. As a prosecutor, we have put people away on felony DUI charges.
As a Reno DUI defense attorney, we have fought for and won many DUI cases. We understand all aspects of a felony drunk driving charge, including those involving aggravated DUI, homicide, or vehicular manslaughter. The Law Offices of Kenneth A. Stover fight for reduced charges or a complete dismissal of your case.
"Lifetime DUI" Charges
State law requires that once you have been convicted of a felony DUI, you are never entitled to a misdemeanor conviction for any subsequent DUI charge. This means, if you are convicted of a DUI felony, and you are caught drinking and driving again, it is automatically another felony charge.
- You can be charged with felony DUI under the following circumstances:
- You have committed three DUI offenses within seven years
- You have been previously convicted of a felony DUI charge
- You caused death or substantial bodily harm as part of the DUI charge
A felony DUI means a mandatory prison sentence of anywhere from one year to life, depending on the circumstances of the arrest, up to $5,000 in fines and three years of suspension on your driver's license, starting after your release from prison. You can't afford that kind of punishment.
Our team has an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of DUI toxicology, procedure, and probable cause. We also personally know the tactics the prosecution and police use and how to counter them effectively. The full impact of what you are facing can be terrifying.
