About California Felony DUI


California drunk-driving cases fall into one of three categories felonies, misdemeanors, or wobblers (those that could be treated either as felonies or misdemeanors).  No matter what you are charged with you should always consult a competent California DUI Defense Lawyer.  Typically, California first-offense DUIs are charged as misdemeanors.  However, in certain circumstances, cases may be treated as felonies.  How a California Driving Under the Influence case is categorized depends on a number of factors, including prior DUI convictions and whether or not injuries or death of another person resulted from the drunken driving incident.
