Third driving under the influence is a felony in Kansas

Being arrested on a third driving under the influence, or DUI, charge in Kansas is a felony. There can be some very serious penalties that will affect your freedom. You will no longer be able to carry a gun, even if it is for hunting; you won't be able to vote; securing employment will be more difficult with a record because many employers perform a level one or two background screening on you. Did you realize that your current employer may fire you if you get a felony DUI? You will certainly need someone by your side who can help protect not only your rights but your freedom and reputation. The Law Office of James M. Brun, LLC, can help.

The consequences for a felony go beyond just the charge, you may be sentenced to serve time in jail; anywhere from 90 days to one year. There will be a fine of between $1,500 and $2,500 in addition to court costs. You may be required to enter an alcohol and drug abuse treatment program. You will lose your driver's license for a year. When you do finally get your license back, a device called an ignition interlock will need to be installed for a year. This device is like a breathalyzer and won't let you start the car if you have any alcohol in your system. Finally, the authorities can impound your car for a year.

Our firm offers an aggressive defense of these penalties. We prepare every case as if we are going to trial and we are fully prepared to offer a strong defense to your felony charge. We are also prepared to enter into negotiations in front of a judge if the opportunity rises.
