I have a DUI from March 2010, and another just this past January. Despite the proximity of the arrests (within 5 years), due to the law change on 15 August 2010, is my second DUI necessarily a felony?

NY, Schenectady County. I refused to blow both times. I also have a previous DWAI @ 2006


And thank you

What was your BAC, please?

In other words, I want to verify this is not an aggravated DWI in either case

As previously stated I did not blow, so no BAC.
