Second DUI Offense

Consequences of a Second DUI Offense

A charge of driving under the influence is considered a second DUI offense if you have a prior DUI conviction on your record within the prior seven years. Penalties are automatically increased for a second DUI offense. Barring the presence of any aggravating circumstances which cause charges and penalties to be increased, the consequences for a second DUI involve:

  • 30 days in jail
  • 60 days of electronic home monitoring
  • A minimum fine of $1,195
  • 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

If your blood alcohol content is equal to or greater than .15%, of if you refused chemical testing, you are subject to greater penalties. Whatever your circumstances, our team of experienced DUI attorneys can help you to fight your charges and attempt to avoid such consequences in Seattle, Lynnwood, Snohomish County, and throughout Washington State.

Speak with a Skilled Seattle DUI Attorney!

Our founding attorney has helped many people just like you get through the trauma of being charged with driving under the influence. We know that all can seem hopeless and the potential consequences incredibly frightening, but we are here to fight for your rights and your freedom.

Since Jonathan is a qualified and trained instructor in DUI investigation and field sobriety testing, he can review the scene and circumstances of the arrest, police reports, the government's evidence against you, the validity of any tests administered, and any witness accounts can all be considered. Our firm uses the help of private investigators and expert witnesses to find any points which show injustices and render your charges invalid, any evidence that proves your innocence or any information that casts a reasonable doubt as to your guilt.

Contact a Seattle DUI lawyer if you are facing your second DUI charge within a seven-year period.
