What Is a Felony DUI in Washington?
A fourth DUI or more can mean a class B or class C felony. If a driver has no prior DUIs, however, they can still face felony charges if they are accused of driving under the influence and causing an accident that injured or killed someone else.
If someone was injured in a DUI accident, then the DUI charge is that of a class B felony for vehicular assault. If someone died in a DUI accident, this becomes a vehicular homicide case, with possible class A felony sentencing.
The possible sentencing for a felony DUI can include:
- Class C felony DUI: Up to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine
- Class B felony DUI: Up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine
- Class A felony DUI: Up to life imprisonment and a $50,000 fine
How Can I Challenge a Felony DUI Charge?
