Minnesota Felony DWI Lawyer

HomePractice AreasFelony DWI

Providing Attorney Representation in Minnesota since 2005

The main difference between a felony and a misdemeanor DWI is how severe the penalties are upon conviction. A misdemeanor charge can result in spending between 90 days and a year in jail as well as corresponding fines. Felony DWI/DUI convictions are accompanied by much larger fines and the possibility of being incarcerated for more than a year. A person convicted of felony in Minnesota can have difficulty finding employment, be denied voting privileges and will be prohibited from owning or possessing firearms.

In Minnesota, a fourth DWI conviction within 10 years becomes a felony. Also if you are found to be at fault in an injury accident while DWI, you can be charged with Felony Criminal Vehicular Operation.
