Multiple DUI Lawyer in Lynnwood

Washington Multiple DUI Offenses

You are looking at a very rough road ahead of you if you have been charged with multiple DUI offenses. Without professional and experienced legal representation, overcoming a second, third or fourth DUI charge can be enormously difficult. You need someone who knows what it takes to handle such cases so it is important that you retain the services of a Lynnwood DUI attorney with the know-how to develop the most effective possible defense on your behalf.

It is a fact that judges and prosecutors will do their best to ensure you are not allowed back on the roads, they have little tolerance or sympathy for those individuals who have more than one DUI on their record. Penalties for multiple DUI convictions are serious and range from:

  • Serious Jail Time
  • Court ordered evaluation and lengthy alcohol treatment
  • Hefty fines
  • License suspension from 2 to 4 years.
  • Probation monitoring by the court for up to 5 years
  • SCRAM monitoring and other life altering restrictions

Deferred Prosecution

If you are facing multiple DUI offenses, you may be eligible for a program called Deferred Prosecution. Deferred Prosecution is a serious step and should not be entered into lightly. In Washington State a person accused of DUI can apply for Deferred Prosecution only once per lifetime. Generally Deferred Prosecution requires the offender enter into a two year treatment program and have no criminal charges for 5 years. At the end of 5 years the DUI charge will be dismissed if the program is successfully completed. The costs of treatment are great but are often covered by insurance. There will also be a probation fee and monitoring by the probation department.

Finally, the Court will also order the offender to get an ignition interlock license. If the program is violated then the Court will read the police report and likely enter a conviction against the offender and impose jail and other serious penalties. Clearly, when considering Deferred Prosecution for your multiple DUI offense, you need a Lynnwood DUI lawyer who knows how to navigate the complex requirements of entering and completing this beneficial program.
