DUI Penalties

Lynnwood DUI Lawyer

Being arrested for a DUI is something that can be frightening and life altering. Because there are so many factors regarding DUI it is vital that you contact a Lynnwood criminal defense attorney immediately if you are arrested for driving under the influence. For first time offenders who have an alcohol concentration less than 0.15, and have not refused a breath test the mandatory minimum penalty is an $866 fine and one day in jail. The Department of Licensing will also suspend the offender's driver's license for at least 90 days. These penalties increase substantially if an individual refuses to take a breath test, their alcohol concentration is 0.15 or above, or if an accident occurs in connection to the DUI. The maximum penalty for a DUI is a $5000 fine and one year in jail.

The court is also required to order anyone convicted of a DUI to apply for an ignition interlock driver's license. This requires the individual to only drive vehicles with an ignition interlock device that prevents the vehicle from starting if the driver's alcohol breath concentration level is 0.025 or above. For those individuals who are arrested for DUI and have prior convictions within the past 7 years the penalties become more severe and it is even more vital that you contact a DUI defense lawyer at the onset of any incident involving DUI.
