When OWI/DUI Becomes a Felony
In Iowa, a person charged with his or her third OWI/DUI offense within 12 years faces felony OWI/DUI charges. Having skilled defense is crucial to protecting your short- and long-term interests.
Felony offenses often have mandatory consequences such as:
- Prison time
- License revocation
- Higher insurance premiums
- Limitations on gun ownership as a convicted felon
Our experienced OWI/DUI defense team knows how high the stakes are for you. Attorney J. Dean Keegan has extensive experience challenging the issues of OWI/DUI offenses in court. Our firm reviews police reports, breath test results, squad car or booking video surveillance, and other evidence to develop strategic OWI/DUI defenses unique to your situation.
Other Felony Charges Involving Drunk Driving
Causing an accident or other aggravating factors could also lead to a felony charge. We have defended many clients who were charged with vehicular homicide and OWI/DUI at the same time. Prosecutors treat vehicular homicide cases seriously, so even if you have never been convicted of a drunk driving offense before, you could still face 25 years in prison.
Our attorneys have a reputation for providing superior defense in complex cases such as vehicular homicide or multiple OWI/DUI charges. Our successful track record of results speaks to the skill and diligence we employ in each and every case.
