Consequences of Felony DUI in Washington State
If you have been convicted of four or more DUIs or certain other offenses within a 10-year period of time, a DUI or Physical Control is a felony. A “prior offense” includes any convictions for DUI, Physical Control, or a reduction of these charges to a Reckless Driving or Negligent Driving, or the entry of a Deferred Prosecution. These prior convictions can be from the State of Washington or another state.
A Felony DUI Conviction is a Class C Felony punishable by up to five (5) years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The Court will look at a sentencing grid for the actual sentence imposed in the event of a conviction. The Sentencing Grid is based on a defendant’s offender score and the seriousness of the offense.
