A charge of felony driving under the influence can arise as a result of being arrested for DUI and having suffered three or more prior convictions for driving under the influence or wet reckless within the past ten years; or by being involved in an accident and causing injury or death in the course of driving under the influence. In the case of a death, an individual could be charged with second degree murder as well. In any case, the charge is serious and can result in confinement in the state prison.
