Get started by calling our office now.

Penalties For Multiple DUI Convictions

Under Washington law, a DUI conviction remains on your record for seven years. This means that any additional arrests within seven years of your first arrest will be considered a multiple DUI. If you receive a DUI but it is outside the lookback period, it is considered your first DUI arrest. Knowing this can help you anticipate potential charges and plan your defense accordingly.

For a second DUI:

  • Up to one year in jail
  • 5,000 in fines
  • Two years’ license suspension
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Five years of probation

For a third DUI:

  • Up to one year in jail
  • 5,000 fine
  • Three years’ license suspension
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Five years of probation

If there are additional factors present, such as driving with a blood alcohol content over .15%, causing injury to another person, or the presence of property damage, you may be facing additional penalties. Speak with our legal team to determine what you next best steps are.
