Repeat DUI Offenders – BEWARE!September 29th, 2013 at 18:50
There is a new DUI law that takes effect this weekend. If you have a prior DUI and you are arrested again for Driving Under the Influence of alcohol and/or drugs, beware! Washington State is very tough on DUI offenders, especially if you have had a prior DUI.
A new law has taken effect and has new DUI penalties. If you are arrested for a second offense DUI or subsequent DUI, you WILL BE BOOKED INTO JAIL. You will stay in jail until a judge makes a determination to release you. Further, when you are released you will be ordered to have an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) installed in your car within a few days. Also, you will be ordered to have an ankle bracelet put on (a.k.a. SCRAM) so the court can confirm that you are not drinking regardless if you are driving or not.
