Felony DUI in Indiana

Although a first-time DUI/OWI is associated with harsh penalties, the consequences for a second offense is even more severe. In Indiana, a second-time OWI is considered a felony offense, which means – if convicted – you could be spending time in prison instead of jail. Other more serious DUI-related offense can result in felony charges.

Penalties for Felony DUIs/OWIs

It is considered a Level 6 felony – punishable by a maximum prison sentence of two and a half years and a fine of up to $10,000 – for the following DUI/OWI offenses:

  • Second OWI in the last five years
  • Operates a vehicle while intoxicated with at least one passenger under 18 years of age
  • Causes serious bodily injury as part of the OWI offense
  • Kills a law enforcement animal as part of the OWI offense

OWI causing death is a Level 5 felony, punishable by a maximum prison sentence of six years and a fine of up to $10,000. If the prior conviction was for an OWI causing death or serious bodily injury, the second offense is upgraded to a Level 5 felony. If the second OWI causes serious bodily injury, it is a Level 5 felony, even if the prior offense didn’t result in an injury to someone else.
