Second DUI Charges in Washington State

Getting charged with driving under the influence with a prior DUI conviction on your record within the last seven years means you’re facing even more serious penalties. These include longer jail sentences, larger fines, and harsher restrictions on your ability to drive. If your blood alcohol content is equal to or greater than 0.15%, or if you refused chemical testing, you can be subjected to even harsher penalties.

Barring the presence of any aggravating circumstances which cause charges and penalties to be increased, the consequences for a second DUI include:

  • 30 days in jail
  • 60 days of electronic home monitoring
  • A minimum fine of $1,245.50
  • Driver’s license revocation for a period of two years
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle
  • Alcohol or drug counseling if ordered by the court

Whatever your circumstances, our team of experienced DUI attorneys in Snohomish County can fight your charges using our wealth of resources and experience.

Gun Right Penalties for Second DUIs in Washington State

In July 2023, Washington State lawmakers passed a new DUI law with far-reaching consequences for gun owners. Under the new law, anyone who has two DUI charges on their record within the last seven years can be charged with unlawful possession of a firearm in the second degree if they own, control, or possess a firearm. A DUI conviction is not necessary, either; simply having two prior DUIs marked on your record can prompt this effective removal of your firearms rights, even if the DUI charge was reduced to a negligent driving charge. This circumstance makes it critical to hire a second DUI offense attorney who knows how to get a complete dismissal of pending DUI charges.
