DUI Attorney, Michael Munoz, answers; What Is A Class 6 Felony Aggravated DUI?
A Class 6 Felony Aggravated DUI is when someone is driving under the influence of alcohol, or is over the legal limit. It is like a regular DUI with the added element of there being a child in the car. The charge will legally apply if the child in the car is under 15 years of age. The most common scenario is when someone is driving with one of their children in the vehicle, and they are caught and charged with an Aggravated DUI which is a Class 6 Felony.
What Are The Possible Penalties For A Class 6 Aggravated DUI?
The penalties for a Class 6 aggravated DUI are different than the Class 4 because it is less serious. It is still a felony, but the minimum penalties mimic the DUI misdemeanor statutes, meaning that if it was an aggravated DUI where the person’s blood alcohol was allegedly over .08, then the person would be looking at a minimum of 10 days in jail, 9 of which can be suspended so that the person may end up doing a minimum one day or a maximum of six months in jail.
The person is looking at a minimum of 30 days in jail and a maximum of six months for an Aggravated DUI Class 6 where their blood alcohol comes back over .15. It is a minimum of 45 days in jail and a maximum of six months in jail if the person’s blood alcohol was over.20.
All of the charges would have mandatory fines and fees associated, and everyone would have to take alcohol substance abuse classes if convicted. The big thing about an Aggravated DUI is that it is a felony. It’s important to understand what a serious charge that is.
