When it comes to felony charges in Maine, you can either be considered a Class C or Class B felony. Class C felonies usually carry less steep penalties but are still much harsher than those associated with misdemeanors.

A Class C felony can be prosecuted with a minimum of 30 days in jail, four-year license suspension and a fine of $1,000. It is important to remember that this is the minimum sentencing and it is likely for many to face higher consequences.

Hiring a Maine DUI attorney is the best way to fight any type of DUI charges. Even if you decide to plead guilty or believe you will lose your trial, an experienced felony DUI attorney will make sure your sentence is as lenient as possible and that you are treated fairly.

A Class B felony occurs when a driver has a previous DUI felony conviction or causes an accident that leads to a death. The repercussions may include up to ten years in prison, ten-year license suspension without the ability to request a work-only license, $20,000 in fines and three years of probation.

In addition, those that are suspected of being under the influence of alcohol may be asked to submit to testing. Refusal of these tests can lead to an automatic increase in penalties on top of a felony conviction.

Regardless of the class, a felony conviction of any type will remain on your criminal record and have negative effects on your career or educational aspirations.
