Penalties for Felony DUI in Tennessee
In the state of Tennessee, most DUI offenses are charged as misdemeanors. A fourth DUI offense, however, will result in felony charges. You will also be charged with a felony DUI in other circumstances such as:
- You cause serious injury in a traffic accident due to impaired driving
- You cause the death of another person (vehicular homicide)
- You drive with a minor in the car while under the influence
- If a child passenger under the age of 13 was injured or killed
- You caused extensive property damage in an accident
A fourth DUI will be charged as a Class E felony which carries penalties of minimum jail time of 150 days, $3000 to $15,000 in fines, and the suspension of your driver’s license for 5 years with no possibility of obtaining a restricted license. You may also be required to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle at your own expense. You also may face having your vehicle impounded.
