Is The Third DUI Offense A Felony Or A Misdemeanor?
A misdemeanor: This DUI may be a misdemeanor depending on the timing and disposition of your prior DUIs. If this is your third DUI but not your third DUI in 84 months (seven years), your driver license was in good standing, there was no one under the age of 15 in the car, and you were not required to have an interlock on your vehicle, these facts will make your third DUI a misdemeanor.
A felony: This DUI may be a felony if this is your third DUI within 84 months (seven years); if you are driving on a suspended, restricted, revoked or canceled driver license; there was someone under the age of 15 in the car or you were driving in violation of a court restriction (i.e., without an interlock). These facts will make your third DUI a felony.
