Is a DUI considered a Felony in Washington State?

It’s no secret that many people who have been arrested for a DUI in Washington State are scared of the unknown. One of the most common questions asked is: Is a DUI a felony in Washington State? In most cases, the answer is no. However, if an accused offender has 4 or more previous DUI or Physical Control convictions that include reckless driving, negligent driving, vehicular homicide or other driving issues from a DUI arrest, then it may be considered a Felony DUI.

In most cases, DUI offenses are considered to be gross misdemeanors, which usually result in 1 year in jail and a maximum penalty of $ 5,000 if convicted. Even though felony and misdemeanor DUI differ, a DUI is a serious criminal offense and should not be taken lightly. Whether you are convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony, you can face harsh and unforgiving punishments that include: restricted travel to Canada, mandatory jail time, license suspension/revocation, expensive fines and fees, and other consequences that will put a strain on your personal and family life.

If you or a loved one has been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs, it’s very important that you speak with a skilled and experienced DUI lawyer who can help you explore your legal options.
