Alabama DUI Law Changes

Posted by Steve Eversole | Sep 30, 2007 | 0 Comments

The Alabama Criminal Appeals Court changed Alabama DUI law today and shortened sentencesfor those with multiple Alabama DUI convictions.  In the past, any four Alabama DUI convictions resulted in a felony.  Now, in order to constitute a felony, the four Alabama DUI convictions must be within a five year period.  Thus, if you have three DUI convictions within a five year period, but then receive a fourth Alabama DUI conviction in six years, that DUI conviction is not a felony.  In the past, that fourth DUI conviction, regardless of how many years have passed, would have resulted in a felony DUI conviction.
