New Push In Olympia to Make the 4th DUI a Felony

There is a new push in Olympia to make it law, that someone’s 4th DUI will be a felony. Currently someone has to be convicted of a felony 5 times of the course of 10 years. A common misconception is that a DUI is a felony, when instead it is actually a misdemeanor. This week Bellingham DUI attorney Jonathan Rands dives into what this could mean for recurring offenders and explains the meaning of terms like felony, gross misdemeanor, and simple misdemeanor.
