What Are the Penalties for Multiple DUI in Skagit County?
The penalties for DUI in the state of Washington depend on the circumstances of your case. You can be charged with a DUI even if your BAC (blood alcohol content) is below .08 percent if you are under the influence of drugs, or you can be charged with reckless driving if your BAC is below .08 percent.
The following are the penalties for DUI in Skagit County:
- Second offense DUI — 30 to 364 days in jail, up to a $5,000 fine, and up to 2 years of license suspension
- Third offense DUI — 90 to 364 days in jail, a $5,000 fine, and 6 months in a 24/7 alcohol program, and 3 years or more of license suspension
- A fourth DUI or beyond is sentenced as a felony DUI
If the driver refused to submit to a blood or urine test, then sentences can be increased. The same is true if a driver was found to have a BAC of .15% or higher. After serving a sentence, even once a driver regains their license, it will be a probationary license for five years.
