Legislators are busy down in Olympia again, which means DUI laws may be changing. Bellingham DUI Attorney Jonathan Rands gives Dillion Honcoop a rundown and the likelihood of possible changes to DUI law to come including:
- Changing the 4th DUI arrest within ten years to a Felony DUI instead of the 5th;
- When you get a DUI, there is a seven year look-back period that can dictate the mandatory penalties from both the court and the DoL if you have a prior within that time frame. They are now proposing that look-back period go from seven years to fifteen years, as well as harsher sentencing.
- Also included are proposed changes for the DoL to suspend or revoke licenses for much longer than they have historically done before.
