There are three factors by which a DUI can be charged as a felony in California. Conviction in these situations will almost certainly result in a sentence in a state prison of one year or more and impact your gun rights, your voting rights and other freedoms. You can be charged with a felony if:
- You have three prior DUI convictions within a 10-year period and you are charged with your fourth DUI
- Your DUI violation involved an accident in which another person was injured or killed
- You have a prior felony DUI conviction
