Law Office of Lance R. Fryrear recently had a client approach the firm
when arrested for
DUI charges. I, Lance Fryrear, took on the case knowing I would have to build
a strong case for the client. He/she was facing charges for performing a
breath test and having a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of above the legal limit.
The BAC limit for drivers 21 years or older is .08%. If a driver is under
21 years old, the legal limit is .02%. My client is 21 or older and was
over the legal BAC limit but under .15%. If a driver performs a breath
test and the results are above .15%, there are harsher penalties in Washington.
The penalties that my client was facing for his/her DUI charge, include:
- From 24 hours up to one year in jail
- A fine of at least $940.50 and up to $5,000
- License suspension for 90 days
- Ignition interlock device
- Possible alcohol or drug education
- Washington SR22 Insurance
In Washington, there are also consequences if a driver refuses to take
a chemical test after being arrested for a DUI. My client did not refuse
the breath test so he/she avoided the mandatory one year license suspension.
As a Lynnwood DUI lawyer, I am very familiar with the process of defending
against these types of charges. After representing my client, I was able
to have his/her charges amended to a traffic infraction. In doing so,
my client avoided a criminal conviction along with jail time, a license
suspension, an ignition interlock device and any potential immigration
consequences. Do you need a lawyer for a DUI in Lynnwood?
