A felony DUI conviction has greater consequences and much more serious penalties than a misdemeanor DUI conviction. One can face felony DUI charges if it was a third DUI within the past 10 years, or if there was an accident that has alleged to have been caused by driving under the influence, and which resulted in an injury or death.
If convicted of a felony DUI in the Portland area you can be charged with a maximum prison sentence of 5 years, a maximum fine of $125,000, and a lifetime suspension of your license. You may have the option to petition for license restoration after 10 years. A felony DUI is a serious legal problem, and your future life will be heavily impacted if you are convicted.
