The number of times you have been arrested for or charged with DUI has a significant bearing on how you will be treated by the system. Cops, prosecutors, judges, treatment agencies and even defense attorneys will all analyze your situation differently based on how many times you have been charged with DUI. It seems obvious to say that a person who has three prior DUI convictions will be treated much more severely than the person who is facing his first offense. This section is designed to give a broad overview of what one might expect based upon his or her DUI related history. And though there is a DUI Sentencing Guideline chart on this site, this will attempt to give you a more practical sense of both the procedural and substantive differences you will face.
Regardless of where you fall on this list, contact a Seattle DUI Lawyer as soon as possible for a consultation regarding the specifics of your case.
