Penalties for Aggravated DUI
Tennessee law enforcement takes all forms of drunk driving seriously, and the punishments for a first conviction are intended to deter the behavior and prevent a repeat offense. Under certain circumstances, DUIcharges will be increased to felony DUI, and the most serious degree is Aggravated Vehicular Homicide while Driving Intoxicated. It is a Class A felony, which occurs when any of the following conditions are true:
- You have two or more prior DUI convictions, vehicular assault convictions or a combination of the these
- You have been convicted of vehicular homicide in the past
- Your blood alcohol content (BAC) was greater than 0.20% when you committed the vehicular homicide and you had a previous DUI or vehicular assault conviction
