Prior Convictions for DUI in Seattle
If you have an earlier conviction for DUI and are facing new charges, you may be subject to increased penalties. Pursuant to RCW 46.61.5055, those who are considered repeat DUI offenders face exceptionally severe consequences should they be convicted again, such as increased prison time, higher fines, more severe license penalties, electronic home monitoring, sobriety treatment and/or required insurance. Our attorney identifies the flaws and errors in the case and implements the best course of action for your defense.
If you have prior DUI convictions and a new DUI charge is brought against you, our review and evaluation of the evidence is critical with regard to the final outcome of your case, since the penalties are extremely harsh for repeat offenders. The most serious penalties are implemented against those who have four prior DUI convictions within 10 years. With such an extensive prior record, the new DUI charge will be filed as a Class C felony with very serious consequences that will have a negative impact on your life.
