What can upgrade my DUI to a felony?

Many elements in a DUI can increase the charge to a felony, making it even more important for you to retain skilled representation to contest the charge.

Aggravating factors for a drunk driving arrest include:

  • Driving without car insurance
  • Causing serious injury to another person
  • Getting a second DUI while transporting someone under 16 years of age
  • Driving without a driver’s license
  • Driving while your license is suspended or revoked

Felony charges can come as a surprise to those who forget to renew their insurance. For these instances, you need to retain an aggressive Rockford DUI attorney who can push to have your charge reduced to a misdemeanor or have it dropped completely.

We can take the fight to law enforcement if they did not have probable cause to pull you over in the first place. Similarly, it is sometimes the case that the breathalyzer you were administered gave a faulty reading from not being properly calibrated. We can contest your DUI charge on multiple grounds to encourage the case to be thrown out.

Your future is worth protecting, and Schafer DeRango & Cain, LLP knows how to challenge the prosecution in fighting for your freedom.
