Felony vs. Misdemeanor in Kentucky
The majority of first, second and third offenses within a ten year period carry misdemeanor penalties with the maximum jail time limited to 12 months. Upon a fourth violation within a ten year period, the charges are categorized as a Class D felony. Felony DUIs carry much heavier punishments than misdemeanor charges. If any aggravating factors are present, the mandatory minimum for a Class D felony is 240 days in jail, which cannot be suspended or probated.
