Felony DUI Arrest in California
Los Angeles Felony DUI Court Process
When a DUI is charged as a felony, you will be facing enhanced penalties, including a state prison sentence of up to 3 years for a 4th DUI conviction, and more.
Any felony DUI court process will begin with your initial arrest. Upon observing the actions or behavior of a person who is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, a police officer will pull you over and may ask you to submit to field sobriety tests and blood or breath testing to determine your blood alcohol concentration.
After your arrest, one of three things may occur:
- You will be released, without any charges being filed.
- You will be charged and can post bail or be released on your own recognizance.
- You will remain in custody (if you are denied bail or if you cannot make bail) and will then be transported to Court for your arraignment.
