I was arrested for misdemeanor DUI but have a felony DUI on my record from 4 years ago. I anticipate the courts bumping this misdemeanor to a felony DUI because of the prior felony DUI...my question is once it is increased to felony will I 100% be taken back into custody/need to bail out? Is it possible for this to be charged as a felony and me to still be out on my own recognizance? Or is there always a new (high) bail amount set when a charge is increased to a felony.
Your input is very much appreciated!
