In the Commonwealth of Virginia, there are a couple of instances in which a DUI offense is charged as a felony.
If you’ve been charged with a third or subsequent DUI offense, you’ve automatically been charged with a Class 6 felony DUI. This carries with it a $1,000 minimum fine, a one-year minimum prison sentence, and mandatory indefinite driver’s license suspension.
You could also be charged with a felony in certain situations where someone was injured, maimed, or killed during or as a result of the DUI offense, as stated in VA Code Section 18.2-51.4. or VA Code Section 18.2-36.1.
