Champaign Felony DUI Lawyer

Sometimes a DUI case is elevated from misdemeanor to felony status. The charge is then called aggravated DUI. This happens when:

  • The accused already has one DUI conviction on his or her record.
  • The accused is driving without insurance.
  • The accused is driving without a valid driver's license or on a suspended or revoked license.
  • Minors are in the car, or the arrest is inside a school zone.
  • The accused caused an accident with injuries.
