Multiple DUI Offense in Lynnwood, WA
Penalties for Multiple DUI Charges in Washington State
If you have prior convictions for driving under the influence, the penalties for another DUI conviction are automatically increased. For this purpose, prior DUIs are considered if they occurred within the seven years prior to your current charge. If the DUI charge is a felony charge, or if there are certain aggravating circumstances, additional penalties may apply. While any blood alcohol content .08% or over results in a DUI charge, penalties are also increased if your BAC is greater than or equal to .15% or if you refuse chemical testing.
Although varying in degree, penalties include:
- Jail or prison time
- Loss of driver's license
- The installation of an ignition interlock device (IID) in your vehicle
- Mandatory electronic home monitoring in some cases
- Alcohol or drug treatment counseling, as ordered
