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.
