Multiple DUI Offenses

Penalties for Driving Under the Influence

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:

  • Fines
  • 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

Call a DUI Lawyer in Seattle for a Case Evaluation!

The potential penalties in your DUI case are something that you, of course, want to avoid at all costs. At DUI Heroes, we understand this and our goal is to help you achieve dropped charges or an acquittal. We will help you through this in any way we can and ensure you understand what is happening each step of the way. In order to improve your chances of a positive outcome, it is important that you do not discuss your case with law enforcement officials without an experienced attorney being present. Anything you say may be used against you in ways you wouldn't expect and it is safer to say nothing at all. Our team is available for you to contact 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Contact a Seattle DUI lawyer if you are facing a DUI charge following prior DUI convictions.
